Description

The 79 songs in this 240-page songbook are a treasury of classic children's songs, the music that has been a part of our childhoods for generations. These songs were chosen by author Ben “Gitty” Baker from among his personal favorites, the sort that you’d be most likely to hear around the fire at a summer camp, at nursery and grammar schools or on kids' television shows. These are the classic, traditional songs that we all know and love and grew up with. 

This book contains a number of newly revised and expanded arrangements songs that have appeared in previously released songbooks, as well as nearly 30 newly arranged songs not found in any of our books. Each song arrangement includes 3-string tablature, chord names and forms, lyrics and additional verses. A short snippet of background and history is also provided, as well as multiple arrangements in different keys and styles, to accommodate varying skill levels and vocal ranges. The book also includes supplemental instructional sections on how to read tablature, play chords and more!

These books are printed and bound in the USA.

You can also get this songbook directly from Amazon, with free shipping through Prime. Customers in Europe, be sure to browse Amazon.uk or Amazon.de to order a copy that will be printed and shipped from within the EU!

Cigar Box Guitarist Shaq Collins writes:

In each book Ben will first give you an introduction not only to the book but the history of the songs within. It sets a scene of the world at the time of these songs. You get an idea of why the songs were written to begin with. Ben then goes on to give a lesson on how to read these songs. Some people may know very well how to read chords and tablature but somewhere out there these books may be someone's very first song book so I find it a very nice touch. Another thing I do like, which I have seen other books be guilty of in the past, is the larger type size. Ben has ensured that these books be very easy to read and follow. One thing I will say is a huge plus in each of his books is the page layout. Although there are chord charts in the beginning of each book, each song will have not just the chords displayed that you will need to play them but diagrams of how to play them so there is no need to flip back and forth to make sure you're fingers are where they’re supposed to be. If you’re umming and ahing about getting one of Ben's books, you’d be wise to do so because there are few better feelings than learning how to play a song you love then absolutely nailing it.
