Books on CD, Notation and Tab Detail

Great American Tablature Song Collection (Folk Song repertoire)  

Mark Hanson

Mark Hanson's original Great American Tablature Songbook is now available in a two-CD format, retitled Great American Tablature Song Collection. All the original pages - which feature tablature, standard notation, lyrics, chord grids, tab guide, etc. - plus the front and back cover are viewable onscreen and are printable in PDF format from the CD. This text/tab CD is compatible with both PC and Macintosh computers. With the Abode Acrobat program (free download from Adobe), you can view all of the pages of the book on screen, and easily print any or all of them on regular 8.5" x 11"paper.

Included in the package is the same 70-minute audio CD as the original release. This CD features Mark's guitar solos of all 57 tunes. On the tunes that include lyrics, Greta Pedersen's sparkling vocals are panned to one channel in the stereo mix, with the guitar in the other. Some of Mark's best arrangements are included: "Ashokan Farewell" (the PBS "Civil War" theme), "El Condor Pasa," "Water Is Wide," "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," and many more.

The categories include: Love Songs & Ballads; Fun Songs & Nostalgia; Blues; Western & Fiddle Tunes; Ethnic Songs; Sacred and Holiday Songs; Good Ol' USA Songs. (See below for the entire list of songs.)

ALSO AVAILABLE: We also offer a printed score of the PDF files that are on this DVD as a separate product. Visit the Great American Tablature Song Collection Printed Score page in our Notation & Tablature section for more details.
