Anne Dodson’s Field Guide to the Mountain Dulcimer, Book 2 continues from Field Guide to the Mountain Dulcimer, Book 1 (MB30608M), introducing two subsequent levels: “Branching Out” and “You Take the Driver’s Seat”. These additional levels will improve your understanding of the fretboard and allow more seasoned players to create their own arrangements. Inside you will find extensive exercises and lots of original tunes with accompanying audio tracks. Fun, relaxed and encouraging instruction is at the heart of Anne Dodson’s approach in this series. Book 2 offers more tunes in DAD tuning, but also introduces DGD and DAC tunings. Includes access to online audio.
