Reviews - What do customers think about The Bluegrass Gospel Songbook?
Great Jul 31, 2008
I was impressed with the number of songs in this book. It has really helped out in my hobby.
Bob's Review Oct 30, 2007
Some friends and I have a bluegrass gospel group. I am always on the lookout for new material and this book is just what we needed. Many of the songs in the book are familiar but it is good to have the melody in note form so we are sure of the tune. Great job by Wayne Erbsen
Great Songbook Aug 23, 2007
I really love this approach to a song book. Excellent choice of songs, lots of background info and generally speaking good keys for most adult singers.
A simply wonderful and enthusiastically recommended addition Jan 4, 2007
Compiled and edited by Southern Appalachian music instructor and historian Wayne Erbsen, "The Bluegrass Gospel Songbook" presents 172 pages of lyrics, music, history, and chords to over one hundred bluegrass gospel classics. Enhanced with the inclusion of more than one hundred vintage photographs, "The Bluegrass Gospel Songbook" presents information on the roots of gospel music, a 'painless' gospel music theory, instructions on choosing the right key, and how to operate a Capo. Of special note is 'Harmony 101', as well as tips on singing lead, tenor, baritone and bass. Featuring such wonderfully well known classics as 'Amazing Grace', 'Are You Washed in the Blood', and 'The Old Rugged Cross', to such lesser known gems as 'I Am a Pilgrim', 'Little Moses', and 'Who Will Sing for Me?', "The Bluegrass Gospel Songbook" is a simply wonderful and enthusiastically recommended addition to personal, academic, and community library American Music History reference collections.
