    This may very well be the most divisive book in the folk music community I have found that people who think of themselves primarily as singers tend to love it because it has the lyrics to 1200 songs People who think of themselves primarily as instrumentalists tend to hate it because the chords are presented in a mysterious hard to decipher harder to play notation that gives you no clue as to what the time signature the tempo and the rhythm of the song are The separation of the chords from the lyrics in the text adds to the difficulty In addition since only chords and lyrics are presented the book gives no clue as to what the melody is so a melody player like a fiddler is out of luck Its fans will excuse these shortcomings by telling you that to use the book you have to know the song This makes little sense to me as a guitarist bassist and fiddler because if I know the song I don't need a fake book Other problems are that the chords listed for some songs are simplified to the point of removing the richness from the harmonies and for other songs are just downright wrong While it contains a lot of songs it tends to omit or give short shrift to many of the songs from the darker side of the folk tradition eg songs of rage hurt self pity grief The type in the standard sized edition is pretty small so if you have any issues with your vision this book will be hard to read when it is sitting on a music stand especially under low light Although the font is a bit bigger in the group leader edition these 52 year old eyes still find it tough going If you are a serious folk musician you may need to have a copy of this because it is widely used If you have a choice in the matter there are far better books out there though they do not contain as many songs

    WowSeriously Wow This is the greatest songbook you'll ever find and possibly the only songbook you'll ever need It's a fantastic resource for both singer and playerI think I'm on my third of fourth I keep wearing them out

    I borrowed this from the library several year ago and just kept renewing it for the next six months When I finally had to return it I pined away till I got my own copy for my birthday O Happy DayOnce again I can regale my kids with many old folk songs Bob Dylan classics children's songs even hymns This book really does have something for everyone The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that valuable space that could have been used for old timey music is taken up by space filler like My mom's a feminist It's only a wee wee and Gay spirit which features the classic lines You run and tell those old patriarchs We're no longer blind to their ways Run and tell them we've stolen the keys To the prison they have madeYEAH

    This is an amazing collection of songs from all cultures and generations With lyrics and guitar chords for over 1200 song titles one can't go wrong when in need of a music reference My brilliant music director told me about this wen we were beginning our new Interfaith Church It has been an amazing tool that we are using to create our own hymnal The songs range from popular The Beatles Pete Seeger etc to Negro Spirituals to Silly Children's' Songs The uses for this book are practically unlimitedIt is in a compact format so it is easily portable Cool illustrations are throughout Say hello to some old favourites and make some new friends as you experience the blessing of music Awesome book

    I've had multiple copies of this book since I was a kid It was the first book I turned to when I was learning guitar I remember marking all of the songs I knew thanks to hippie parents and teachers in my first copy then marking it again a few years later and being surprised how many of them I hadn't even realized that I knew It's been useful to turn to for lyrics numerous times when I've been told I'll be part of a festival closing number or a jam It's sort of a historical document of my life as well as folk music


  6. Matt Matt says:

    I can't say enough good things about this book A great resource for those like me who are musically impaired all the chords all the lyrics and all the sources in one place for hundreds of songs I'm surprised at how many songs I'm familiar with in this book many of them I'm learning from listening to WUMB folk radio UMASS Boston on the web


  7. Julie Julie says:

    I honestly cannot imagine my son's childhood without this book It contains the words to over 1000 songs Many of which I remember sang or know somehow and some I've learned along the way My copy is getting so tattered now I may need a new one and my son will probably want to take one to college with him


  8. Amelia Amelia says:

    This is a great collection of song lyrics but I find the lack of musical notation is a major drawback You have to already know the tunes pretty well to use this book for singing but it's a pretty good reference even if you can't remember the tunes

    I LOVE this book Especially the intro by Pete Seeger I bought my own copy finally Now I can sing The Battle Hymn of Women whenever I want Mine eyes have seen the glory of the fire of women's rage
