This book has something to delight almost every audience and player. Engaging and interesting, with lots of variety. Ms. Helmer has included several “fake” style songs challenging the player to unleash creativity and improve improvisation skills. Many pieces are single pages. Keys of C, G, F, Bb, and Eb with a few accidentals, so a full range lever harp tuned to Eb or pedal harp is recommended. Accompaniment chords are clearly marked above the treble line. There are a variety of tempos and moods, everything from 6/8 to 4/4, and lots of captivating rhythms. UPPER BEGINNER TO LOWER INTERMEDIATE, ALL HARPS.
