American folk music is just right for recorder. From the lyrical beauty of Amazing Grace and Shenandoah to the rollicking good fun of Lane County Bachelor and Old Joe Clark, these 34 tunes will keep you playing and keep your listeners dancing and singing.
All of the tunes are notated for soprano recorder. They can be played on recorder alone, or with piano, guitar, or any chord instrument. Chord symbols are included with the music.
The lyrics are included in the book. Lyrics can help with learning rhythm, or with memorization of the melody. They allow the player to sing as well as play, or to invite others to sing along. Besides, they are fun.
The Play-Along CD includes two sections. The first section of the CD includes all of the tunes, with Jessica Walsh on recorder and Andrew D. Gordon on piano. The second section is a Play-Along, featuring wonderful piano accompaniments arranged by Anita Briggs.
The music notation for the piano accompaniments is in PDF format and is available for download if needed.42 page score and CD.
