A collection of thirty guitar solos for the plectrum or flatpick guitarist drawn from the early American shape-note tradition. These songs reflect the rugged faith of Americas early settlers and range from joyous, rhythmic pieces to somber, contemplative melodies. The arrangements are of medium difficulty and present a broad palate of harmonic colors. Written in standard notation and tablature. Includes access to online audio, recorded by the author.
