Dave Haas - More Beautiful Melodies

Item number 1310104, Regular price $28.00

This workbook/CD set was written for the intermediate-advanced player who aspires to create musical arrangements by playing melodies in different positions on the fingerboard and by creating song medleys.

This book is more than a collection of songs - it provides detailed written and audio instruction on how to play advanced arpeggios on the mountain dulcimer. The workbook/CD consists of 26 song arrangements, 8 arpeggio exercises, and 42 audio tracks which build the necessary skills to play beautiful, slow and melodic music on the dulcimer. All of the songs and exercises are referenced to the accompanying CD, which allows the listener to play along while learning to bring forth beautiful melodies from the mountain dulcimer.

"More Beautiful Melodies" expands on the work Dave Haas began in "Beautiful Melodies," and presents the dulcimer player with more challenging arpeggio exercises and song arrangements.

64 pages.
