Customer Rating:   2 Reviews Write a Review


101 Three-Chord Songs for Guitar, Banjo, and Uke composed by Larry McCabe. For Guitar (Flatpicking & Fingerpicking). Perfect binding, SongBook. McCabe's 101 Series. All Styles. Beginning. Book. 128 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.99476).

ISBN 9780786651597. All Styles. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

You need only minimal playing skills and three chords--G, C, and D7--to accompany all the great songs in this innovative book. If you are just getting started, or if you are a "casual" player on a chording instrument, this is the perfect book for you. The book is absolutely bursting with a great variety of music: Old-time, bluegrass, gospel, Christmas, children's tunes, Stephen Foster, British and Celtic, cowboy, blues, and more. Because melody and lyrics are provided with every song, singers will also enjoy this wonderful collection of the world's favorite songs. Truly a book of outstanding arrangements, made playable for folks who play for their own enjoyment. (Some of these songs, like "Dark Hollow" and "Way Downtown," are hard to find in print.) Guitar, uke, and five-string banjo diagrams are included for the three chords, along with tips on strumming and transposing tips for singers. An invaluable reference book for teachers and pros, too!
