Genie Rise Up Singing Book II: 'Rise Again' (162* d) RE: Rise Up Singing Book II: 'Rise Again' 26 Oct 14

"I have much the same feelings about "the book" that I've always had. It's a very fine refernece book, but it should be left home on the reference shelf and should not be brought to hoots."

I'm with you, Bob.

I often to keep my RUS in my gig bag, but mainly as a listing of possible songs to sing and/or as a reminder of the key or maybe the overall chord progression. It is really lousy as a book to sing from—and I do not think it was ever meant to be that kind of "songbook."

That said, I do look forward to "Rise Again," because there are so many "standards" and "Ameriana" and folk songs that had to be omitted from RUS.
