Synopsis
"What I have tried to do in this little book is to give beginners an easy and direct method for learning how to accompany American folk songs. You do not need to read music, or to learn to read it in order to play American folk guitar. The country boys who developed the guitar styles couldn't read. They played by ear. It is my object here to help you to join them in playing their hoe-downs, ballads and blues just as quickly as possible. In the following pages you will find the chords you need. More importantly, you will find explicit instructions on the "licks" or right hand techniques that give American or any guitar style its special colour. When you have worked through these pages---a process that might take you a month---or a couple of years, depending on how much time you can give the job---you will probably not be able to play like Pete Seeger or Lead Belly or Josh White or The Carter Family. But you will be in a position to learn how to play as well, or to develop your own style, based upon authentic materials." [from foreword by Alan Lomax] "Contents: I. Holding The Guitar (page 2), II. Tuning (page 3), III. How To Practise (page 3), IV. The Chords (page 4), V. Right Hand Styles (page 7), VI. Songs With Chords: 1. On Top Of Old Smoky (page 14), 2. Old Paint (page 15), 3.
