Doreen Muskett’s Hurdy-gurdy Method, first published in 1979, has proved of immense value to players all around the world. The third edition, revised by Michael Muskett, improves still further a book that already stands as an exemplar for instrumental methods.
The method is written for instruments tuned in G/C, where the keys and notation are the same as a piano. But it is equally useful for D/A hurdy-gurdies.
The CD was produced for the 2nd edition but the musical text is much the same, with most of the tunes given in the exercises being on the CD also. A correlation chart is provided.
