Evelyn's Big Book for Mandolins 2017: A Collection of Tunes for 3 Mandolins (Evelyn's Mandolin Collection) (Volume 2)
Evelyn's Big Book for Mandolins 2017: A Collection
This book contains 150 reels, jigs, hornpipes, waltzes, airs, and songs arranged for folk ensembles. I have especially arranged them for mandolins, though they can be played on most other C instruments. I chose the tunes because they are truly satisfying to play and represent many styles. There are choices to suit or create any mood. The traditional tunes come from across four centuries and around the world (Australia, Canada, England, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, the United States, and Wales). The book also includes contemporary and classical favorites by European and American composers, as well as some of my own compositions. Each arrangement consists of the melody line, descant line (harmony generally within or higher than the melody), and harmony line (generally lower than the melody), as well as chords for guitar or accordion. Most scores are printed on one page.
