"Phyllis Gaskins - Galax Dulcimer: A Job Of Journey Work"

Phyllis Gaskins is widely regarded as having a direct connection to the historic Melton and Russell families of the Galax, Virginia area. She learned directly from Raymond Melton. As such, she is one of the most knowledgeable Galax-Style dulcimer players in the country. Her book is the most authoritative description of the Galax-Style from its history to the practical aspects of playing in the Virginia style. If you want to play an authentic Galax-Style dulcimer, you need to do two things. First, you should try to attend one of Phyllis's live workshops. Second, you should get a copy of this book and read it from cover to cover. Phyllis reveals the knowledge she has gained over her lifetime, and it is a must read for any aspiring Galax-Style dulcimer player.
