The versions in this book simply work. I like that two keys are often given for a song, which helps singers to find a version that fits their range, or instrumentalists to find a familiar key. Many of the tunes are so inviting and pleasurable. Anyone who has been involved in teaching music or public singing likely knows some of these, but I still found a few I did not yet know but now love.
Great collection of Old Time and Traditional Music. Arrangements show melody, lyrics and chords. You also get another chord arrangement and chords showing numerical values (e.g. I, IV, V ~ 1, 4, 5) help transpose the keys. Fantastic reference/guide for playing in a ensemble or solo playing. Plenty of additional reference info for guitar, ukulele, banjo and mandolin chord info. It's even got some reference material for harmonica players. Glad I purchased it. Actually I purchased a second one to have an extra when I play with others.
I studied both guitar and banjo at the Old Town School many years ago. I now live in Florida, and I ordered the book for sentimental reasons. It contains many of the old familiar folk standards I learned there.
This songbook was the hit of the last music camp I attended. The song selection is fantastic, the print is large enough that more than one person at a time can read it, and the arrangements are simple but good.
