This colorful new anthology of guitar music contains 49 best-loved American folk songs from all corners of the country, from the Deep South to New England, from Appalachia to Gold Rush California. Every song has been specially transcribed, arranged, edited, and newly engraved for guitarists at all levels, in an easy-to-use combination of traditional notation and guitar tablature with simplified chord symbols. As a bonus, two all-time favorites, "Amazing Grace" and "Black-Eyed Susie," are included in arrangements for two guitars.
The collection includes such perennial favorites as "John Henry," "Simple Gifts," and Stephen Foster's incomparable "Beautiful Dreamer." Devotional songs like "Go Down, Moses," "Amazing Grace," and "Deep River" are here, along with such sentimental ballads as the timeless "Aura Lee" and "Shenandoah." Patriotic songs such as "Yankee Doodle" and "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" share this wonderful edition with the delights and humor of "Blue Tail Fly," "Little Brown Jug," and the like.
Guitarists, folk singers, and all lovers of America's great traditional music will welcome this sturdy, attractively engraved, and affordable treasury of folk classics.
