Description

A collection of 38 beloved, easy-to-play sea shanties and other seafaring songs from Ireland, Scotland, England, America and beyond, arranged in tablature for 3-string Open GDGB cigar box guitars and other homemade instruments. Each song includes multiple tablature arrangements in different styles and keys, chords & chord forms, full lyrics and additional information. Ben Gitty has painstakingly created these new arrangements and resources specifically to help beginning players get started.

Easy-to-follow instructional material is also provided: How to Read Tablature, How to Read Chord Forms, and some suggestions on how to play the songs. Three pages of 4-string chord forms are also provided. This is a must-have resource for any cigar box guitar player!

These songbooks are printed and spiral-bound by hand right here in the C. B. Gitty workshop, and each one is signed by Ben Gitty. This spiral-bound edition is limited in number and will be replaced by aprofessionally printed and glue-bound version within a couple of weeks.
