Music from the Heart

Original Songs for
Mountain Dulcimer

Music from the Heart, the new collection of dulcimer tabs, can now be purchased! View my Web Store page for a link to purchase the book.

Other dulcimer players have asked me about my chord-melody style, and this book will help you use more chords in your playing.

The book includes 15 original songs for you to learn, and has some instruction about chord shapes, flourishes to help you play melodies more easily, arpeggios and using a capo. 

This page includes samples of each of the songs so you can listen as you learn and practice!

For more samples of Tom's songs, visit the Recordings page by clicking here or the tap at the top of the page.

A recent review on reads:

"Superb artist, incredible book. This treasure is not your typical collection of (nice, but unoriginal) jam tunes. This volume of original works for mountain dulcimer ranks among the best, and is highly recommended!"
