sku: 49-291915
Book with online audio. 47 favorite 19th century American songs arranged for fingerstyle guitar from Glenn Weiser's recent CD, My Old Kentucky Home. Here you'll find Stephen Foster's famous compositions and other parlor songs, African-American spirituals, Civil War anthems, familiar hymns and 1890s hits. These priceless legacies of our national heritage form much of the soundtrack of American history: Oh! Susanna was on the lips of every Forty-Niner during the California Gold Rush, Harriet Tubman sang Swing Low, Sweet Chariot on her deathbed, and Abraham Lincoln wept the first time he heard The Battle Hymn of the Replublic. Now guitarists can play these and many more in new, beautiful solo arrangements. Note/tab. 83 pp.   More Details...
