About the Author

John Denver knew that the most wonderful things in life are simple and free. Things like sunshine and friendship. He shared his feelings in poetry and song--and with his remarkably expressive voice, millions of people responded. "People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit," he said. "No matter what language we speak, what color we are, the form of our politics or the expression of our love and our faith, music proves it: we are the same." He wrote Sunshine On My Shoulders during the difficult times of the Vietnam War. It was a tonic for anxiety, and a reminder of the good, pure things in life. As John said, "When things were seemingly out of control, here was a dove coming back with news of dry land. Or at least a song that soared upward, and took its audience back home." It hit the top of the charts, along with many other songs of his. Over 32 million John Denver albums have sold in the United States alone, making him one of the top selling vocal artists of all time.

By J. Baynie on May 28, 2010
I love this book! It has a great selection of songs; beautifully arranged. The fingerstyle in this book includes the actual melody (i.e. vocal) line in the actual arrangement.

If you intend to sing along and want a 'backing' type accompaniment ONLY - then this MIGHT not be suitable. Having said that, there really is nothing stopping you from singing along to it also!!! I bought it wanting to be able to play an arrangement so that those familiar with the songs would recognise them immediately, without me singing!... and now I do just that. A real delight!!!

Whilst this book probabaly isn't suited to the beginner (unless they are willing to persevere a little), I highly recommended for the intermediate plus, fingerstyle player!!!

This is difficult music to master. The finger style tabs may be good for accompanyment, but does not sound at all like the actually melody. I was looking for music that was written for a fingerstyle melody. Also, if you just want to strum, its not written in guitar friendly chords. You will need a good grasp of barr chords. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, unless they are an advanced player.

I agree with the earlier reviewer. A very good book for those of us who don't/can't sing. Arrangements provide the easily recognizable melody. For example I own the original arrangement of "Sunshine" that JD played. John's voice carries the melody and the guitar is essentially a backup rythmn or accompaniment. "My Sweet Lady" is really a nice arrangement and so is "Poems, Prayers and Promises.". I think the book is for intermediate level players. Beginners will struggle and advanced players probably would want something a bit more complex or more multi note chords included. I'm pleased with the purchase.

I was looking for a good version of Annie's Song to learn to play and this version was not it. After researching this tune on the web, I found other arrangements that sounded better.
