TNT - Tunes 'N Techniques

TNT - Tunes 'N Techniques
For Hammered Dulcimer
(All Levels)

 

After teaching and performing on hammered dulcimer for over 16 years, Mark Wade developed an exciting new pedagogy which builds 'classical' technique while enjoying fun dulcimer tunes! In May 2007, Tunes Ďní Techniques, 7th Edition was released with even more tunes and more techniques!

 

T.N.T. 7th Edition now includes transcriptions of Markís playing from all six of Markís CDs! There are an additional 16 songs not yet recorded that are Markís favorites to play and teach. Almost every song is written for every ability level, from rank beginner to advanced. This is made possible by Markís unique theme and variations form of each tune. Each new tune presents the melody in its simplest form (for beginners). Then a series of variations follow, each getting progressively more difficult. In this way, players can work up to their ability level and be able to enjoy every piece.
