Music of Ireland-Give us Another-

Music of Ireland Series
Presenting a family of five books, designed to give value-for-money access to the wealth of tunes played in Irish sessions throughout these isles. Many were noted in sessions as being particularly good melodies, others were transcribed from commercial recordings because of the difficulty in finding satisfactory settings elsewhere. Thus, these volumes are not simply re-hashes of other collections. Each tune has chords appended and all in all the books represent a fascinating cross-section of the body of traditional Irish music – not just the reels and jigs. Each book leans a particular way – thus possessing its own unique character – and contains tunes which range from the popular through to some quite difficult lesser-known ones. Karen Tweed contributed the front cover artwork.
Each book contains approximately 70 tunes and has a classified index which abounds with alternative titles. The music is suitable for all instruments associated with traditional music and chords have been added for the accompanist.
