Mountain Dulcimer Books

Lullabies and Other Lilting Melodies - Book


Mel Bay Publication

Lullabies and Other Lilting Melodies is a compilation of tunes designed to "soothe the savage breast." The contents of the book are divided, almost equally, under the heading of Lullabies, Classical Selections, and Folk Melodies. All are arranged for the mountain dulcimer in 1-5-8 (Mixolydian tuning). Along with the tablature notation, traditional music notation indicates the melody, suggested chords, and lyrics for many of the songs. An intermediate player should feel comfortable with the music as the songs are indicated for both strumming and some finger picking patterns, and do utilize chords on all 3 strings. The CD recording is very helpful to understand rhythms and expression.
