Jan, if you don't have Anne Lough's Celtic Treasures or Joe Collin's Simply Celtic, and you love Celtic, then yes, by all means, get those books! They are both fantastic!!

Hmm...I'm currently at Dulcimer U at Western Carolina University with Larry Conger, Ann Lough, and Joe Collins.....maybe I'd better take another look in the vendors' area!

That is hard to say!  I'll go with Larry Conger's "September on the Mississippi" with favorites being Sept. on the Miss. and Wayfaring Stranger........ and also Heidi Muller's "So Sang the River, Songs of Bill Staines" with favorites being So Sang the River and River.  I'm going to check out the books you mentioned.   I too, have dreams of playing by ear, or even from memory.... or standard musical notation!   But I'm dependent on tab at this time :)

Ken, haha, maybe one day! I am amazed at folks who can play by ear and memorize so well. Waaay out of my league! I have Sue's book but haven't gotten much into it YET. It looks amazing.

Tab books?  Never use 'em.  I have lyrics pages for maybe 30 songs that I play frequently at Open Mics, and at the top I have tab for the opening bars of the song.  I just don't play from tab.

I'm finding I just can't seem to put down Joe Collin's Simply Celtic book and Anne Lough's Celtic Treasures. They stay out and I'll stop what I'm doing to go over and just play one song...or two...or three...or ...wasntme
