Mel Bay Publications, Inc.
This manuscript is a collection of the tunes featured on Maggie Sansone's "Wind Drift" recording. The pieces, Celtic in style, were written for the 14/15 hammered dulcimer (the larger dulcimer with more chromatic notes) but can be played on the smaller 12/11 instrument as well. Chords are provided to identify harmonic structure, provide a guide for an accompanying instrument, and as encouragement for the reader to create his or her own variations. This book, in tandem with the aforementioned recording, will enhance the musician's understanding of the tunes and their spirit, offer insight into Maggie Sansone's playing and arranging style, and inspire new musical ideas.
