Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Essential Songbook  Sep 2, 2008
Rise Up Singing has more songs for the buck than just about any songbook anywhere. I am amazed at the songs that were included - a balanced selection of old standards and some quality songs that haven't received much acclaim. I an a good guitarist and can figure out all kinds of chord systems, but the one used here is unique and takes some getting used to. Once mastered, it is easy to follow. As with most songbooks, I disagree with a few of the chord selections, but we all grow stronger with debate. Buy this book!
A book you'll actually use  Aug 22, 2008
I like to cook and have found that a good cook book is filled with recipes you would cook anytime, even a new one for first time guests. Other books might have one or two good recipes but overall, they just doesn't spend a lot of time off the shelf and in the kitchen. This music book is like a good cook book in a way - filled with songs that you will spend hours singing, jamming with friends who will know songs you don't and playing for your kids, yourself and others. It will get used over and over again. I actually bought this book 8 years ago along with a guitar for my husband for our first Christmas. I bought it again recently for a friend who did spend hours with my husband pouring through our copy, playing guitar and having a marvelous time. A broad scope of songs with lyrics and guitar chords. Enjoy!
Great  Jul 3, 2008
Get thee to a camp fire with this. Proud to say that I sang years ago with Pete Seeger. (He was visiting the camp I was the song specialist at in New York- not that he would remember me). These songs are all familiar and easy to sing and sing along to. A great feel of a time past!

Best songbook ever!  Apr 29, 2008
I've had this book since I was a kid in the early 90s who wished she'd been around for the sixties. I found it in the library and checked it out over and over til I finally had to special order a copy from the Waldenbooks in the mall. ('Member back in the day when we ordered stuff from Waldenbooks?)

I am far from an accomplished musician! But I got the hang of their system pretty quickly. You have to really know the song to make any sense of the chords, since it's just lyrics and chord names, but it tells you the chords for each line and if you do know the song you'll have a sense of exactly when to switch chords. It also tells you what albums have the song on them so you can find it if you don't know it but like the looks of it. ('Member back in the day when we bought albums?)

Anyway, this book is fantastic, I love it to death, and you should buy the spiral bound version so it stays open while you play and sing. ('Member back in the day when we played and sang? Oh yeah, we still do that. That will never go out of style!)
The basic "hymnal" for our singing group  Jan 18, 2008
This book is the one referred to as the "hymnal" by our informal sing-along group (I think one of he members picked it up from an autoharp class she had with Brian Bowers). It's a good description; we often find ourselves saying "Is such-and-such a song here? I'm sure it is, lemme see now ... ah. Turn your hymnals to page 62 ..."

As Pete Seeger mentioned in the introduction, there's bound to be at least song you know on every page. It's true that there's a strong populist sentiment in the editing process (which some critics would label "leftist" or "socialist" or "liberal"). That's to be expected, since it sprang from the roots of the folk movement of the last mid-century, which sprang in turn from the union organizers and community organizers who were addressing serious social dysfunctions in their songs. And they paid heavily for the right to compose, sing, and teach these songs, often with their freedom and their blood, a fact which many have forgotten or found it convenient to ignore. I doubt you'll get any apologies for their inclusion here, and certainly not from me.

But political-themed songs are a small minority here anyway, and they are easily outweighed by the lullabies, love songs and "fun songs" that cut across culture and politics. Even Rush Limbaugh would find some favorites here.

My only minor quibbles with the book concern occasional mistakes in lyrics or attributions, which detract from its value as a reference (which it was never intended to be). It is also not for rank beginners; you won't always be able to figure out which chords go where, particularly if your acquaintance is with a different version of the song than the authors had. (Bob Dylan's version of "Blowin' in the Wind" and Peter, Paul and Mary's version used different chords for the same melody, so which one should we be using ... the author's version or the most popular cover of it?) But If you know the song, the annotations allow you to fake the accompaniment reasonably well.

If you're playing an instrument, by the way, get the spiral-bound "Leader" version, which is the 9"x12" one. It's a lot easier to read from a few feet away, which is probably the distance from your eyes to your music stand.
