Cowboy Songs for Harmonica

by Glenn Weiser, foreword by Ranger Doug Green
The harmonica is indelibly associated with the popular image of the cowboy, playing his plaintive, warbling melodies to wile away the evening hours and calm the cattle, as music was known to do, after the herd had stopped for the night. With few options for entertainment along the trail, other than poetry, dancing and music, itís no wonder that hundreds of songs emerged from the Old West telling of the cowpuncher's life, the exploits of famous outlaws, and other aspects of frontier existence. In this book, youíll find 27 of these traditional ballads arranged for the 10-hole diatonic harmonica. All songs include music notation, harmonica tablature, guitar chords, lyrics and online audio files with acoustic guitar backing tracks.
