    It's a joy to have all your old American folk favorites in one book, with notation, chords, illustrations and thoughtful comments from Seeger included. For the beginner (or rusty player), Seeger has even included chord diagrams in the back. It's the exact same wonderful book from the 60s...

    , just brand new!
