Cowboy Songs for Autoharp by Carol Stober (Book) Price $14.95
Review shown on Amazon.com
This book is a collection of cowboy oldies and a few unfamiliar new tunes to play on the autoharp. It includes notes, chords, and easy to follow autoharp tablature as well as all lyrics. Drawings created by a real Texas cowboy and original poetry from several authors enhance the true flavor of the cowboy spirit. It was exactly the book I needed to spur my enthusiasm for learning some new autoharp techniques. I recommend this book to anyone of any skill level from basic beginner rhythm playing to more advanced melody playing on the instrument.
