This book and accompanying audio present a comprehensive array of ideas intended to add interest and decoration to basic melodies. Mastery of these embellishment techniques will also help in the development of complete arrangements. This project offers some familiar and possibly unfamiliar song titles. The accompanying audio is a valuable tool for learning both the melodies and embellishments, containing two versions of each song. The included techniques progress from basic to more challenging, and are varied to enhance the contrasting musical styles presented across eighteen songs. A variety of styles are covered, encouraging the player to apply new embellishment techniques to familiar repertoire.
For someone who has completed Thomas' First Lessons Hammered Dulcimer (MB20066BCD), this would be a good next step.
