Whether you are a guitarist who is looking for quality pieces for performance, or someone who enjoys playing for themselves and is looking for some great material to play, this is the book for you. Some of these wonderful pieces you will recognize, and others will probably be new to you, but I think you will agree, once you play them, that there is not a bad piece in this collection. From the lovely "Amazing Grace," to the lively "Shady Grove" to the sweet "My Own True Love," I believe you will find this collection to be invaluable. You will also discover some beautiful folk songs from other countries like the haunting "Dance of Zalongou" or the Peruvian "Song of the Lagoon." All of these wonderful selections combine to make this an essential collection. In addition to providing you with some great arrangements of the folk songs you know, this volume will also introduce you to some new music you will not want to miss.Music notation is in the front half of the book, music tablature is in the back half.
