    How To Play "Tune This Dulcimer":

    There are 44 notes on this Hammered Dulcimer.

    Most of them are randomly out of tune. A few here and there are left in tune to use as a starting reference point.

    Your goal is to get them all in tune as quickly as you can. The timer counts up while you are working on the tuning.

    Touch each note you want to tune.

    Note indicator shows: Green = In-Tune or Red = Out-of-Tune

    Touch the Tune or Tune Down arrows to bring the note into tune.

    Tune the note too high and you'll break the string and end the game! The game will warn you when you're getting close to breaking a string or tuning way too low.

    "Left to Tune" shows how many notes are still out of tune.

    Touch "Start Over" to end the game and star with random new note pitches. A few random notes here and there will always be left in tune so you will have a new starting reference point.

    Your tuning progress, best time, and time elapsed on the current set of notes are saved when you close the app so you can continue where you left off at a later time.

    Touch the "?" on the upper left to hide or show the note name labels. For a real challenge, practice tuning the dulcimer with the note labels hidden.

    Touch the "i" on the upper left to bring up the help screen and related links. On this screen you can also reset your best time.

    Touch the "Shhh" icon on the upper right to quiet all the ringing strings.

    On the help screen, click the link the AppCordions logo to visit my website where you can learn more about my innovative Traditional Musical Instrument apps. Unlike this one, those apps are are in perfect tune.

    Hammered dulcimer samples provided by Jesse Chappell. Click the ThumbJam logo on the help screen to learn more about ThumbJam, his innovative music performance app for iPhone and iPad.
