Parlor Guitar --
Book/CD Hal Leonard, pub. 2006
For my guitar-picking friends --
After much hard work, the book has arrived. I personally wrote out
note-for-note transcriptions of ten of the longer songs from my 2005 CD, Parlor
Guitar. The top staff is fully notated music notation for fingerstyle
guitar. The bottom staff is guitar tablature, all done to Hal Leonard specs for
guitar music. The songs included are:
They Didn't Believe Me
by Jerome Kern
by George Gershwin
by Spencer Williams
Sobre las olas (Over The Waves) by Juventino Rosas
by Johnny S. Black
by Paul Lincke
Alexander's Ragtime Band
by Irving Berlin
by Louis Silvers
by Nick La Rocca, et al
Grand Old Rag
by George M. Cohan
There is an audio CD included with the book that has these 10 songs, all
my original Parlor Guitar album (note: the original full album
has 16 more tunes not included with the book's CD).
The suggested retail is $14.95 in music stores.
COVID-19 Pandemic notice:
It is probably your best bet in these days to order this book via Amazon.
Here is a direct link as of 4/22/2020, if the link won't work search "joel
mabus parlor guitar book" at Amazon:
Shipping would be extra, unless you are a Prime member, or are ordering other
stuff. You know how Amazon is.
I try to keep a small number of books on hand, for mail orders, but these days
who knows? If I have copies I would charge
$15, plus $4 processing per book and $6 shipping and handling.
$25 total for one book sent. Email me for shipping details. I take
checks, or send invoices for cc, or take PayPal
If you want to go "old school" here's the drill:
send $25 for one book and tell me where to mail (USA only*).
Make checks out to me and send to:
PO BOX 306
PORTAGE, MI 49081
And be sure to tell me if you want it autographed or
Best to send an email first to see if I have copies on hand.
* postage from USA to other countries is terribly
high these days. I can give you
a quote, but you would most likely find it cheaper to order this book through a retailer in
your own country. Hal Leonard is a world-wide publisher of music instruction
