A book of simple and relatively unknown folk tunes from around the world. Very good for students. Nicely arranged for harp – very enjoyable to play, lovely melodies. The majority are within the range of the 26-string harp going to the C below middle C, tuned in C with only F and G sharps needed. Very clearly notated. Many fingerings are provided as suggestions. You are welcome to change them to fit your needs – they are not set in stone.
Four selections are heard on the YouTube below, and a glimpse of each song is offered. Additionally, you can download a PDF where the same glimpse of each tune can be printed or looked at carefully. Sample PDF available at www.folkharp.com – search SIMPLE TUNES top right.
