From 1651 to 1728 John Playford, his son Henry, and John Young published multiple editions of the Dancing Master collections of dance instructions and musical accompaniment. Over 500 distinct tunes were printed in these volumes and they give us one of the best pictures of English popular dance music in the 17th and early 18th centuries. This book presents 121 of these tunes adapted for the mandolin, with many transposed into more mandolin-friendly keys. Suitable for use in teaching and performance, these tunes are still played today. Note/tab with chord symbols. 127 pp.   More Details...
