Jigs and reels, hornpipes, airs and dances! Songs and instrumentals! They're all here in an exciting collection drawn from the six Celtic "nations" of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and the Isle of Man. Each traditional song with its lilting melody and rich accompaniment harmony has been carefully selected and arranged for your complete enjoyment. Songs are presented in both note form and tablature with chord symbols and diagrams that are large and easy to read. Lyrics and extra verses are included for many songs. And for quick reference, songs are listed both alphabetically and by Celtic nation. Arrangements are for the tenor banjo in standard tuning: CGDA.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I play a mandola tuned CGDA. Mandolins, in comparison are tuned GDAE so mandolin music is rather useless. Subsequently, I'm having an almost impossible time finding tabs for a mandola instrument. I know a tenor banjo has the same tuning so I bought this book hoping the tabs would be helpful. The selection of celtic songs is good, however, when I checked the keys for the songs, only one song is in a key that would allow me to play the mandola with others playing guitars and mandolins. If I want to play solo, I'm all set, but I was hoping for something in commonly used keys so I could use the mandola in jam sessions. If I want to play the one song in this book that is in a generally used key, I'm fine, but as far as the other songs, I'm back to square one.
