This book includes selections chosen to celebrate the quiet joys and consolations of the winter season. The mountain dulcimer arrangements range from well-loved seasonal favorites to less familiar carols from a wide range of traditions, including European carols, Shaker music, shape-note tunes, and spirituals. Within the book, each tune is presented in at least two different versions ("variations"): the first version of each set presents a simple arrangement for less-experienced players; subsequent versions increase in complexity and more closely resemble Nina's recorded arrangements. The book also includes a background section, with history of the tunes, lyrics, and helpful playing tips. Tuning mostly DAD (some with capo), and some DGD.
