Product Details


Short easy pieces of traditional music from around the world.

Compiled from titles across our popular World Music Series and edited by acclaimed folk musicians Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer, this book features tunes for solo guitar, with optional accompaniments, from the British Isles to the USA, from Eastern Europe to Asia and beyond. 

Ideal for beginner grades, Easy Folk Guitar is a round-the-world ticket for musical inspiration. . The title includes a CD of all tunes recorded.

The Easy Folk series
Easy Folk is an ideal beginner resource for those looking to explore traditional music from around the world. There are volumes for fiddle, flute, recorder, guitar, ukulele and accordion, with all arrangements tailored to each specific instrument and each tune set in the most comfortable key. Difficulty levels have been carefully considered with all tunes lying between UK grades 1 and 3. Piano accompaniments by Jonny are available online, and chord symbols are included to encourage improvised accompaniment and ensemble playing. Each accompanying CD contains high-quality recordings on real instruments, and play-along tracks are available to download for the flute, fiddle and recorder books. 

The aim of Easy Folk is simple: to make traditional music from around the world accessible to beginners on a range of instruments. All the arrangements in Easy Folk are by the acclaimed folk musicians Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer, and the tunes are sourced from the established and successful Schott World Music series of over 50 books, each researched and compiled by a specialist in its particular musical tradition. Recognisable titles like Sally Gardens, Drops of Brandy and Maiden Lane join perhaps less familiar Scandinavian dances, Klezmer music, Sephardic tunes and more. The eclectic and broad-reaching Easy Folk series covers the British Isles, Scandinavia, Eastern and Western Europe, North America and China, and provides a great departure point from which to explore a whole range of more advanced publications. 

Both classically trained musicians, Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer now specialise in performing and teaching traditional music. Vicki holds the Zorn Bronze Award for Swedish bagpipe playing, as well as playing flute, recorder, piano and nyckelharpa (Swedish keyed-fiddle) and various other types of bagpipes. Jonny is a specialist on accordion and guitar and is probably Britain’s leading exponent of the Swedish Kohorn (cowhorn).
