A collection of the best traditional songs from blues and gospel music as well as several Irish folk songs arranged for solo fingerstyle guitar in both standard notation and tablature. The arrangements include well-known songs as well as a few that have almost been forgotten, whose melodies are marked by a timeless beauty which has helped them survive for many decades. In addition to standard notation and tablature, picking and strumming patterns offer additional methods of accompaniment. On the CD, all of the songs have been recorded with a full arrangement and many even have a vocal version as well.
