To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As promised, the songs are appropriate for people who have a basic grasp of musical notation: keys, accidents, repetitions, little more. You will want to learn to use the two hands independently to some degree before diving in, otherwise it will be hard to get a feeling for the melody. Nothing too demanding, so don't be scared. The musics are easy to follow and memorize, and there's a good musical variety. It is however missing lyrics! Some are hinted in the last page, but if you're trying to learn the songs as a whole, not just the music, you'll have to look elsewhere.
Il volume contiene 21 brani facili da studiare e piacevoli da suonare. Io lo sto usando per riprendere a suonare dopo uno stop di quasi 10 anni e mi sto trovando molto bene. Anche se si tratta di brani molto brevi e semplici provo molta soddisfazione nel suonarli! Sono molto soddisfatta del mio acquisto.
I'm a relative beginner on the harp and always looking for music to build my abilities. This book does it well. I can tell by looking at the songs that in time they will seem ridiculously simple, but I'm not that harpist today. Today these songs are challenging but attainable. I don't know any of these melodies - perhaps someone with more experience in Celtic music would recognize these songs, I don't know. Either way, the book is a useful source of melodic, listenable learning solos.
The book has some lovely songs and are fairly easy, my problem with it is most of the songs are for harps with sharping levers. I think it would have been nice to have 1 or 2 tunes that were really simple to start you off. I recommend "Teach yourself to play the folk harp". It has everything you need to start playing and the easy songs sound good.
I thought I was ordering the book to be mailed to me not entered into my Kindle. Unfortunately, on the Kindle the right hand side of each page is cut off so there are notes missing so the tunes are not playable.
These are nice and simple songs for the harp---more appropriate to a beginner than to an intermediate harpist. A musician familiar with Celtic music will recognize some of these. A more experienced player will be able to improvise and extend the fundamental patterns presented here. Not the best Celtic set we have (even for beginners) but pretty good.
