Thread Name: Songs and Tunes for Autoharp?
Subject: RE: Songs and Tunes for Autoharp? Sweet Fern
I'm an autoharp player named Fern. It would be great to add "Sweet Fern" to my repetoire. Can someone recommend a songbook or album it's on so I can learn the tune? I use my autoharp mostly for accompaniment--there are only a few songs I actually pick out all the notes. I mostly do folk and traditional music for kids, since kids nowadays just learn Barney and Disney. I teach them the good stuff! I like how you can teach history by singing the songs the people of the time sang.
