Compiled and edited by Southern Appalachian music instructor and historian Wayne Erbsen, "The Bluegrass Gospel Songbook" presents 172 pages of lyrics, music, history, and chords to over one hundred bluegrass gospel classics. Enhanced with the inclusion of more than one hundred vintage photographs, "The Bluegrass Gospel Songbook" presents information on the roots of gospel music, a 'painless' gospel music theory, instructions on choosing the right key, and how to operate a Capo. Of special note is 'Harmony 101', as well as tips on singing lead, tenor, baritone and bass. Featuring such wonderfully well known classics as 'Amazing Grace', 'Are You Washed in the Blood', and 'The Old Rugged Cross', to such lesser known gems as 'I Am a Pilgrim', 'Little Moses', and 'Who Will Sing for Me?', "The Bluegrass Gospel Songbook" is a simply wonderful and enthusiastically recommended addition to personal, academic, and community library American Music History reference collections.
