This book/cd combo by Stephen Humphries is so amazing! I believe that what he teaches in this book makes this the most usable HD book out there. I've purchased many books over the course of my playing career and I wish that I would've had this one when I first started. You will not regret spending time with this book!

This is a brand new book and series by Stephen Humphries. Stephen is a good friend and wonderful hammered dulcimer player. He's probably the most rhythmically sound HD player that I know and I recommend this book to any player at any level. I love this book and it has already helped me to solidify and correct some of my sloppy rhythmic habits. It will transform your approach to arranging and give you tools for years to come. It comes with an audio CD with all rudiments and song samples.
I'm very excited to share this book with you. This is a book that is now in it's 7th edition. I owned the first edition and it helped me Immensely.

Something to fit everyone.
