The book teaches you how to sing and strum ten traditional songs using just a handful of chords. You also learn to ‘pick’ (play melodies) by ear with the ToneWay Picking Patterns, unique to our Method. More importantly, however, you build the skill of playing music by ear. This means that before you know it, you'll be able to strum and pick any song you can sing, in any key, without practicing it beforehand. (This makes playing music with other folks so much more fun!)

We've hand-picked 100 songs; some of the best and most commonly heard. You get all these great features from Big Print Songs:

  • Generous 20-point (big!) type, one song per page… You can read it from the floor!
  • Listen and learn every song for free on our web site, or purchase full band MP3 recordings of these 100 core songs online at
  • Alphabetical order
  • Jammability and speed hints
  • Background information, notes, and history for each song
  • Chords in "1-4-5 notation" make playing in any key a cinch. This simple system is explained in the book if you're not already familiar.
