About English Folk Tunes for Guitar

From the Publisher’s website:

“The latest addition to the famous ‘Schott World Music’ series follows Scottish Folk Tunes for Guitar and features internationally recognised guitarist and composer Hugh Burns as he presents some of his favourite traditional songs.

The arrangements vary in difficulty from about grade 3 to performance standard. The music can be performed on solo guitar or in a ‘session’ situation with other guitarists. In the book a number of the pieces are arranged and played with a 2nd guitarist.

The music is displayed on the stave, tab and chord symbols making the pieces accessible to a wider selection of guitarists. The pieces use various tunings such as; standard, Drop D and Open G.

The accompanying CD contains recordings of all of the pieces along with play-along versions.”
