For a long time, the only way to really understand how this group played their music was to go to their concerts, get a front row seat, and really watch them closely. There were no good books.
Nowadays, getting factual information on how to play PPM's stuff is still really tough. As a previous reviewer has commented, there is some material but it seems the authors did not really know what amateur fans wanted ( Keys of Eb and F# - gag). This book is not like that. It's the best I have seen, so far.
All the material in this book passes the sanity test. It makes sense. It tells you how to chord the songs in "normal people" keys, and then goes on to tell you where to put your capo if you want to do it in the same key as PPM.
The only criticism I might offer is that it still does not go as thoroughly as I wish. I would like to see lots more notation and/or tablature for exact picking patterns and strums that they used. I would like to see who sang what and how. I would like to see the different guitar parts.
I feel PPM are an important part of American History. In the Viet Nam war, you could take your precious few moments of quietness and listen to them on the radio and you would be temporarily removed from the atrocities and miseries.
We need to remember this group.
Hey - Paul Stookey and Peter Yarrow, why not get with Happy Traum and the Homespun tape people and make a DVD like George Grove did for the Kingston Trio. DVD-Banjo Arrangements of The Kingston Trio
A lot of people ( me included) would be grateful.

If you like folk songs, you will like this songbook. This group needs no introduction. This book is a good gift to give to a young guitarist. Recommended.Published 7 months ago by Chebacco
The songbook arrived in very good shape for one that had been used before. And it had all the songs I was looking for to find chords to play.Published 8 months ago by Maryann Miller
I like it a lot and I try to play a few songs on my guitar.
Therefor I will give five stars.
I bought this for my boyfriend and he loved it. Unfortunately, the font in the book is quite hard to read. Read morePublished 21 months ago by V Stiles
Disappointed with the song choices. Hoped there were some that
were more musical. If you have any other children song books
you may not need this one.
