About the author:
Multi-instrumentalist Mark Nelson has carved a unique niche for himself as an entertainer, musician and educator. His deep love and understanding of traditional music led him to the mastery of several different musical idioms, ranging from old time western music to Celtic to Hawaiian. In a career that began well before he was able to drive, he has performed everywhere from street corners to hay barns to festivals to the concert stage in the US, Europe and Canada. He once worked as a banjo playing gorilla in Dublin, but that?s a different story.

Mark?s mastery of the Appalachian dulcimer won him a first place in the National Dulcimer Championships in 1979. He has appeared at such prestigious venues as ?A Prairie Home Companion?, the Letterkenny, Ireland International Folk Festival, and the halftime show for the Skagway, Alaska Girls Junior Varsity Basketball Team.

Fiddle Tunes For Dulcimer-The Rights Of Man

Complete Tablature For The Cd

Authored by Mark Nelson
Edition: Facsimile

Recorded in 1979, "Fiddle Tunes for Dulcimer-The Rights of Man" (Kicking Mule Records #218) was one of the very first recordings to feature the Appalachian dulcimer as a lead instrument playing Appalchian, Celtic and European music. The Tab book spotlighted what was a brand new style of playing called "flatpicking."

In the next few years, Kicking Mule Records released LPs by many of the country's top dulcimer players; including Holly Tannen, Bonnie Carol, Neal Helman, Janita Baker, Lois Hornbostel and Robert Force & Albert D'Ossche. Each one blazed a trail that influenced a whole new generation of dulcimer enthusiasts.

This new facsimile edition of the long-lost book contains all twenty-three songs, playing notes, and illustrations exactly as they originaly appeared.
