These solo fingerstyle guitar arrangements cover a wide spectrum of American music. They include early hymns of the pilgrims, American Revolutionary war tunes, British folk ballads that later became colonial pop songs, sea chanteys, spirituals, Civil War tunes, pioneer frontier ballads, military hymns, and songs of patriotism. They were selected for their heartfelt melodies and their adaptability for solo instrumental guitar. While these arrangements seek to tap the rich polyphonic nature of the guitar, players of all levels will enjoy them and be richly rewarded with the music that is unleashed here. This collection offers an extensively researched musical snapshot of early America and a reminder of the amazing heritage of this great country. Written in standard notation and tablature.

A Fiddler's Book of Scotish Jigs from 18th & 19th Century by Charles Gore. Edited by Alastair Hardie. For Fiddle. Solos. Hardie Music Press. Scottish. Beginning-Intermediate. Book. 48 pages. Published by Hardie Press (MB.HP07). ISBN 9780946868216. Scottish. 8.25" x 11.75" inches. A great deal of Scottish fiddle music was collected and composed by individuals who have largely faded from memory, not because their work is in any way inferior, but simply because the collections they published have become very difficult to find. Whereas the better-known quote "fiddler-composers" (like Gow and Marshall) have been kept in the public eye by writes, artists, and the music publishing world, others are now all but forgotten. A reservoir of quite excellent dance music -- strathspeys, reels, quicksteps, as well as jigs-- remains to be rediscovered. This book contains music from a half-dozen of the lesser-known talents of the period 1780-1820. Call it a first step towards rekindling the quest for the hems of the Scottish repertoire. There is plenty more where these came from! All the music in this volume adheres to the composers' original published versions of the melodies, and adds chord symbols to supply the original "bass" part.
