Description


A collection of some of the most well known and loved songs from Scotland arranged for guitar by internationally renowned Scottish guitarist James Akers. Each song is offered at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.


The songs included in this book of Scottish folk songs are as follows:


  • Ae Fond Kiss
  • Ca' the Yowes
  • Comin' Thro' the Rye
  • Green Grow the Rashes
  • I Once Loved a Lass
  • My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose
  • Neil Gow's Lament for the Death of his Second Wife
  • The Bluebells of Scotland
  • Flowers o' the Forest
  • The Skye Boat Song
  • Wild Mountain Thyme
  • Ye Bank and Braes o' Bonnie Doon


All songs are notated in both music and guitar TAB notation; if you cannot read music, you can still play all the songs. The advanced arrangements in this book have been written in a style based around the work of contemporary folk guitarists like Tony McManus, Stephen Wake and Ian Melrose. In this style, traditional melodies are combined with elements from other genres.


To complement this title, a special free download has been created which includes a PDF of all the chords (in full color) and the lyrics for the beginner versions. Details on how to get the download are within the book.


Without doubt, James Akers has created a book of music that can be used by an individual or with a guitar teacher. If you love Scotland, and you love guitar, then this is the book for you.
