Jean Ritchie (December 8, 1922 – June 1, 2015) was an American folk music singer, songwriter, and Appalachian dulcimer player.

Jean Ritchie (December 8, 1922 – June 1, 2015) was an American folk music singer, songwriter, and Appalachian dulcimer player. Her career formed a kind of bridge between the traditional and modern forms of folk music: in her youth she learned folksongs in the traditional way (orally, from her family and members of her community); and in adulthood she became a successful modern folksinger, promulgating songs in public through concerts and recordings. She was called by some the "Mother of Folk".

The good:
1. Jean Ritchie writes beautifully of her own history with the dulcimer, a history that any dulcimer lover will want to know.
2. She writes knowingly and well about many dulcimer players and makers, providing background information that can only come from someone who knew these people.
3. There are a few songs (generally standard notation plus tab) in the book, and most of these songs were new to me.
4. The review by C. Brooks describes more fully describes the rich content of the book.
5. So, based on content, this is a must-read five star book for dulcimer people.

The bad:
1. The Kindle edition is a facsimile of the printed edition. That means that it is only readable on a large screen, such as a desktop computer or a large tablet. It cannot be read on, say, a smartphone or a smaller Kindle. Also, being a facsimile, the font is not crisp, so even on a large screen, the font isn't great. (Most pages are in double column format.) So, based on the e-book edition, I would give one star.

Great book for the dulcimer minded, (Oak Publications) 1975 Tells the histories of different early dulcimer makers J. Edward Thomas, Will Singleton, Jethro Amburgy, Benjamin Hicks, etc. 59 b&w photos of the dulcimer people, places, and Instruments -as well as thier histories, (more photos of people then places or insruments) Tunings for Major (Ionian) Minor (Aeolian) Mixolydian, Dorian, Lydian, Phrygian tuning modes. 15 pages of dulcimer construction by Hank Levin with illustrations and advice. 30 pages of songs for the dulcimer -both in musical notation and some tablature, as well as tuning styles and playing styles of different players. 128 pages total. There is also advice on how to play the instrument with fiddles, mandolins, and banjos. 5 pages are dedicated to the related instruments, Epinette-with tunings, Scheitholt, and Langeleik from France, Germany and Norway respectively. This is a great early source book for reference use, includes discography, bibliography, and makers, but -this part- may be highly dated as the book is from 1975

Not many new books on playing Mountain Dulcimers cover the old, traditional tunings and style of playing. This one deals with strictly diatonic fretboards and diatonic, modal scales- something that is becoming a lost part of Appalachian music. Now days dulcimers have chromatic frets added and some have completely chromatically fretted fretboards which was NOT how these instruments used to be. If you want traditional, old style, mountain music, this is one of the best resources. I re-bought it, loaned my cope several years ago, haven't seen it since...

Do not order this for Kindle. It is illegible. The print is tiny and muddled. Have not found a way to return it.
It is unreadable on my Kindle Fire.
Tried to download it to my Windows computer and message said it is incompatible.

Fun reading from a master of the mountain dulcimer.
Xcorn
This is a great resource for anyone interested in the history of the mountain dulcimer. Thr Kindle edition is a poor quality scan of a printed edition. It cannot be resized, and is hard to read because it is poorly rendered by the kindle app.

This book is full of knowledge about early dulcimer players. I have really enjoyed reading it.
