Dulcimer a la Mode takes the mystery out of modal tuning and playing for the dulcimer player by presenting four common tunings (DAD, DAG, DAA, and DAC) with instructions for tuning, finding the  scales and chords, and learning traditional tunes in each of the four modes.  This book will encourage players to retune their instrument and learn more of its versatility.  Each is presented as a melody with a drone in the mode indicated with strumming and rhythm guides.  An optional arrangement, or accompaniment is also provided for most tunes that uses more complex chords and reflects more of traditional western harmony.  As a further learning tool, the accompanying CD allows the listener to play along with the melody or accompaniment.
