Quality Arrangements of Early Americana

This book is full of great arrangements at a reasonable price. (30 cents a song!!!) I love collecting Early American folk music, especially sacred songs. The tablature is very well-done, suitable for an intermediate-level player. I enjoy the tunes that employ the DGD tuning for a different modal feel. Definitely worth the $15!

Excellent value! This book has 50 tunes. Some familiar and many new. A terrific addition to my dulcimer music library.
