Pamela R traditional songs - best for learning? (130* d) RE: traditional songs - best for learning? 30 Dec 18


After learning quite a few tragic ballads I made it a point to acquire some non-tragic ones. I know just enough about ballads to know that saying a song is (or is not) traditional is going to get me in trouble with someone, so without any such labels, I will simply mention:

False Lover John
Willie O' the Windsbury
Jock O' Hazeldean

or if a lighter tone appeals to you:

Well Sold the Cow/The Crafty Farmer
Feein' Day/Hiring Day
