From Introduction: Huddie Ledbetter, nicknamed Leadbelly, died in December, 1949 at the age of 64. He had come out of the deep South, settled down in a little apartment on New York's lower East Side, determined to build a successful career as a musician. Unfortunately, there was not much interest in folk music then. He got occasional jobs singing for schools and colleges, or at little parties where they were raising money for some cause like helping Loyalist Spain.

Julius Bernard Lester (January 27, 1939 – January 18, 2018) was an American writer of books for children and adults and an academic who taught for 32 years (1971–2003) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst Contents. 1 Early life and family.

Having explained how to play the five-string banjo and the six-string guitar on previous instruction records, Pete Seeger here turns to the 12-string guitar, and not just the 12-string guitar, but the 12-string guitar as played by one of his primary influences, Leadbelly. With help from some of Leadbelly's recordings, which are heard in excerpts, Seeger demonstrates Leadbelly's techniques, including his tuning, which features slack strings, thus resulting in keys that are lower than they seem. Seeger discusses Leadbelly's rhythm and the specific fingers he uses on given strings.

4. Key of a (A7), Runs, Playing the Bass Strings; By Leadbelly - Old Riley, Skip to My Lou, and Others. 5. Use of the Fingers; Syncopated Bass, Opening Patterns, Beat On the 5th String; By Leadbelly - Leaving Blues, Others. 1. C Position, Walking Bass, 1st and 2nd String In Unison; By Leadbelly - National Defense Blues, Salty Dog, and Others. Open D Tuning, Use of Capo; By Leadbelly - Roberta and Other S; By Pete Seeger - Bells of Rhymney and Others. 3. Transposing, D Tuning, Capa On 6-String, Freight Train.

So it seems only natural that Seeger released an album of guitar instruction, The Folksinger’s Guitar Guide, addressed to both beginners and more advanced players.

From Introduction: "Huddie Ledbetter, nicknamed Leadbelly, died in December, 1949 at the age of 64. He had come out of the deep South, settled down in a little apartment on New York's lower East Side, determined to build a successful career as a musician. Unfortunately, there was not much interest in folk music then. He got occasional jobs singing for schools and colleges, or at little parties where they were raising money for some cause like helping Loyalist Spain. Until the last three years of his life, he had barely recorded more than a few dozen songs. Today, through his recordings, he is world famous as one of the greatest singers of folksongs of this century. Songs he composed, or helped put together out of the fragments of older tunes, or adapted into the form in which we all know them now, have sold in the tens of millions: Good Night Irene, Bring Me A Little Water, Silvy, Midnight Special, Rock Island Line, Kisses Sweeter Than Wine (the tune), Old Cotton Fields At Home, and many others. The driving rhythms he developed on his unusual guitar, with its double strings, are unforgettable to anyone who ever heard them. Today, many young people wishing to learn his songs as he sang them, are trying to learn his style of guitar playing. This book is designed to help them, but it cannot be considered a substitute for listening to the recordings of Leadbelly....It must be remembered that more is involved than playing the correct notes and rhythm. When you listen to Leadbelly on record, you are listening to a man with many years of experience play an instrument. To achieve what he achieved is something which cannot be communicated in a book." - Julius Lester

Like all Julius Lester instruction books this is well structured and simply but expertly written. I would definitely recommend it.

This is for the digital version only, as I cannot read it. One fire tablet won't allow me to put it in landscape, and another shrinks it to display a full page in either aspect. I cannot enlarge it enough to read comfortably on either tablet.

Because of the strong simple melodies and interesting guitar parts, this became my constant companion on my quest for musical competency. Unfortunately, being that I took it everywhere with me, I eventually left it behind somewhere in Central Park, NYC. I need another copy of this book. I was having a great time learning DUCAN AND BRADY when I lost it. If you own this book you're lucky
