  • Irish Rebel Songs -  136-page Songbook with 35 songs for Cigar Box Guitar


Ben Gitty writes: This book contains a collection of Irish and Scottish songs that have to do with the long struggle for independence those countries have undergone. I have also included some related songs about war, battles and outlaws. Many of these songs are sad: they tell of failed uprisings, lost battles, and fallen heroes. 

This 146-page professionally printed and bound songbook contains 35 of the best-known and beloved Irish and Scottish patriotic and rebel songs, all arranged specifically for playing on 3-string cigar box guitars tuned to Open G GDG. Some related outlaw and war songs are also included. The words and additional verses are included for all of the songs, along with chords and chord forms and as well short historical sketches. All of the songs are presented with multiple arrangements for different skill levels and vocal ranges.

Playing these great Irish songs is easier than you ever believed, just follow the numbers above the words in the easy-to-play 3-string tablature format. This book was designed here at C. B. Gitty, with all tablature arranged by Ben "Gitty" Baker. 

Ben also includes how-to-play pages showing you how to read the tablature, read and use the chord forms, and how to approach playing the songs!
