After I built my first dulcimer, it took me three years to understand how to play it. Neil's book was the key that unlocked the mystery. And, it fits right in my case!

I've ordered numerous books from Caiman. They have always been exactly as described and I have never had a single glich from this company. The "Mel Bay Dulcimer Chord Book" was exactly what my wife needed in order to better play the Mountain Dulcimer.

It would be much better if it were spiral-bound. I find it challenging to keep open when I'm trying to figure out new chords or tunings.

It is a great book. Really explains a lot about Modes and Chords in a user friendly way and how to apply their use in playing.

Somewhat helpful and gives a description of the different chord schemes. Kind of difficult to read but I am a beginner

Not easy to figure out. I think the diagrams could somehow be clearer. It would take a person more familiar with perhaps Guitar cording to fully make use of this book. Over my head as a beginner.

Easy to follow instructions to learn to play the dulcimer without personal instruction, clear and concise with drawings to assist in placement of fingers.
