Easy Favorites, Vol. 2, Folk Songs
Music samples have been made into jpgs. The music will look perfectly normal in your book. Your book may have my old name on it (Kleinstuber). It is the same book, same music, same me.
This book contains 26 folk songs from my Feast of Favorites series of books, in easy arrangements. Not “simple,” but easy. The integrity and interest of each solo is there, just less notes, for the not-so-advanced player. If I couldn’t (in my opinion) make something sound good “easy,” I did not use it in the book.
The pieces include chord symbols and some fingerings. There is a short text on fingerings and brackets, and a primer on using the chord symbols. There is also a section of hints and tips on many of the arrangements, making this a “learning” book as well as a “playing” book.
You need C below middle C and 24 strings to play this book. No levers needed.
