Instruction CD Download

The Instruction CCD PictureD is the audio companion to the Strumstick Instruction Book. It demonstrates what is in the book, and is a tutorial in its own right.
Note: The  Instruction CD was originally played on the G Strumstick, then an Appendix was added using the D Strumstick. The information applies to both equally, (but the sound will be different). Only the tuning files are specific to one or the other.

These are .mp3 files, and they are free to Download or Listen to.

If you need a physical CD send us an email and we will mail you one.
