The paperback comes with a play-along CD which contains 21 tracks. Some of the tracks include "All Through The Night," "The Ash Grove," "The Girl I Left Behind," among others.
This is a nice & easy way to learn to play the instrument. Also comes with a tuning chart for 15/14 hammered dulcimer and tips for playing. A listing for workshops and festivals, including dulcimer clubs, is listed on paged 32. Correspondence for additional information to Linda Thomas is at
