3-part arrangements for mountain dulcimer based on the vocal arrangements of the shaped note singing arrangements in William Walker's Southern Harmony, and Musical Companion, newly released and published by University of Kentucky Press.
A collection of songs, jigs, hornpipes, airs, polkas, and marches from the Celtic lands of Scotland, Ireland, and England. The songs are arranged for mountain dulcimer primarily in 1-5-8 (Mixolydian, DAD) tuning along with a few tunes in 1-5-5 (Ionian, DAA) tuning. The arrangements make use of the capo as well as playing tunes in Em and Bm. Two of the songs include a Part 1 and Part 2 as suggested harmony. The book also features a CD recording of solo and mountain dulcimer playing each tune in the book through twice at a medium tempo. The stereo recording allows the listener to learn the tune by ear, or follow along by tab, or traditional notation.
