Howie is the man who expanded the dulcimer's potential by adding that extra fret. Here he tells how he builds his own dulcimers and how he plays them. He does not give you a blue-print for a particular instrument; instead he gives you what you will need to know to make one of your own. Custom cassette only.

Howard W. Mitchell

is a soft-spoken fellow with an inquisitive mind and an irrepressible streak of "do-it-yourself-ism." Not only does he like to make his own music, but he also likes to make the instruments upon which to make the music. The results, in music and in craftsmanship, might give the impression that he is a professional musician, or a professional instrument-maker, but Howie Mitchell is a full-time teacher, and a very special one at that.

In this book he shares his fascination with the mountain dulcimer and its music in a concrete but creative way. After a brief introduction to the instrument and its forms, he leads you through the development of his own interests and thinking about the dulcimer through several years and lines of experimentation. There are no highly detailed building plans here, and very little note-by-note instruction, but Howie's explanations are clear and gently logical and encouraging, so that, with a little patience, you can succeed in building an instrument and making your own music on it. There is system here, and plenty of information, the kind that gives you a good start and then frees you to go on.

First published over a decade ago, this book and its accompanying instruction record have maintained their uniqueness and relevance. It is now reprintedówith new, more legible type and a new coverófor the next generation of dulcimer-builders and -players.
