about

This recording was originally released on cassette by Dragonfly Music as DFMC002 to accompany the book of the same name, ISBN 1 872277 16 0.

The tracks are intended as a representative sample of tunes from the book, and the number in brackets after each tune's name is its number in the book.

I play both melody and harmony. There is almost complete stereo separation between the parts so it should be possible for someone learning one part to turn it down and play along with the other.

Caveat 1: if you like Swedish traditional music, listen to some actual Swedish people playing it!

Caveat 2: Most of the tracks came from the DATs but one was corrupted so I had to make a transcription from a good cassette copy.

NB I will be publishing the book again at some point. If you sign up to my newsletter at www.benpaley.com I'll let you know when it happens.
