This collection will help spark an interest in the development of an American repertoire for the classical guitar. Traditional Scottish and Irish tunes were transformed by the African rhythms of banjo players, which in turn influenced popular music and led to ragtime, jazz and blues. The amount of folk music in America is staggering. The nineteenth century gave birth to many unique American styles and its songs are an important part of our musical heritage. Even today, quite a few of the tunes in this collection will seem very familiar. Written primarily in standard notation, the exceptions being those tunes in altered tunings which logically appear in tablature only.
