2. INTRODUCTIONWhen Americans thinl< of their folk songs,they tend to think of a vast body of music familiar to themselves and their friends and neighbors.These are the songs sung to the ch. ildren,1eamed in school,or whistled at work and play.Here is music as diverse and vital as the people from which it springs.It is a body of work that includes favorites that are generations old-often music that can be traced back to the far-away lands that were the ancestral homes of the American family.In one way or another,all the songs in this new collection form an intrinsic part of this colorful,extra- ordinarily diverse American culture. Here are arrangements for guitarists at every 1evelfrom the beginning student to the concert artist.For the less experienced musician,I've added simplified chord symbols above the tablature.These will help the player to better understand the implied harmonies of the music.And,to create a less intricate,easily manageable texture in the arrangements,I've avoided the more complex inversions and extensions. Perhaps this diversified menu of folk-song favoritesdrawn from an immense body of musicwill inspire the player to explore this wonderful source and the musical and performance possibilities it presents to all of us.
