Thread Name: Songbook of Child Ballads?
Subject: RE: Songbook of Child Ballads?
Save your money on The Ballad as Song/Bronson. I purchased it before having my Singing Tradition made up....it is a textbook, not really a tunebook. Unfortunately, the dealer that i got Ballad from was french, and i have absolutely no french. His english was adequate, but we did a near miss on what i wanted, and what he sold me. If you wanna know how ballads work, it is a great book. If you wanna play tunes, you want the Singing Tradition.
