DAA is a beautiful tuning for the mountain dulcimer. This book contains 19 arrangements of traditional Irish, Welsh, French Canadian, Scottish, and American folk tunes and songs that are rich within their melodies, complemented by the DAA tuning. Although the DAA tuning results in predominantly linear movement of the fingers along the frets with jumps and runs along the melody or middle string, the richness of the DAA tuning more than compensates for extra finger movement. These arrangements are written in notation and tablature for the three-string dulcimer with chord symbols, with a mix of strumming and fingerpick/flatpick arrangements. Lyrics are included where appropriate. Beginning level of difficulty. the companion play-along CD features all of the tunes in the same order as the book, played by the author. Each tune name is announced, and spoken countoffs and cues for repeats and are also provided. the recording will help make the unique style of the dulcimer clear.
