Favorite Harp Tunes
Mel Bay Publications, Inc.
Renowned harpist, arranger and instructor, Kim Robertson has created this diverse collection of 25 engaging American melodies for solo folk harp. The selections include traditional Appalachian, patriotic, and cowboy ballads plus lyrical melodies by American composer, Stephen Foster. With the long sustain and resonance of the harp, playing these melodies can serve as a bridge between generations of listeners, young and old.
The arrangements are easy to intermediate in difficulty with chord symbols included for optional accompaniment. The grand staff notation is intended for lever harps with up to 36 strings. The key signatures contain up to two sharps or one flat with a few simple lever changes. These arrangements can be simplified or embellished as desired without changing their inherent peaceful and nostalgic effect.
