Put some aloha into your playing with Hawaiian & Polynesian Music for Appalachian Dulcimer!

More than just a repertoire collection of classic Pacific island melodies, this book includes the history and background stories of the individual tunes and a brief language pronunciation guide. In addition, the author provides humorous and insightful observations on interpretation, fingerstyle technique, and Hawaiian slack-key guitar style as applied to the mountain dulcimer.

Written in standard notation and tablature for the 3-course dulcimer with the 6+ or 6 1/2 fret, these fingerstyle arrangements are for intermediate to advanced mountain dulcimer players who are looking for a challenge and want to try something new. These arrangements sound best played fingerstyle, and make use of polyphony, harmonics, hammer-ons and pull-offs, and the sweet chords beloved by Island musicians.

Some selections like "Aloha 'Oe" are instantly recognizable, while others such as "Wehiwehi 'Oe" or "Pauoa Liko ka Lehua" may be unfamiliar outside of Hawaii. Includes access to online audio of all 22 examples and melodies in DAD, CGC and DGD tunings. To help the student master these arrangements, the author provides detailed performance notes for each tune. Includes access to online audio.
