The book provides solo guitar arrangements in standard notation and tablature plus a vocal stave with complete lyrics and chord diagrams for 60 songs of faith, freedom, hope and the human spirit. A companion CD includes the author’s rendition of all of the guitar solos in the book. The book provides an in-depth analysis of the various meanings and messages of the spirituals, and traces the musical forms that grew out of them, namely blues, jazz, gospel, country, calypso, rhythm and blues, soul, and rock. This book is for all who play the guitar including: students, music teachers, parents, performing guitarists, vocalists and anyone with an interest in folk, gospel and sacred music.
