Subject: New Robert Burns Bool
From: GUEST,Adrian Allan
Date: 09 May 17 - 04:43 PM

I have just published a second volume of songs of Robert Burns arranged for guitar and voice.

These are full fingerstyle arrangements, not just melody plus chords. However, chord symbols have been provided, as well as tablature for both the melody line and guitar parts and of course, conventional notation.

Volume one sold quite well, released this time last year, and I hope some people here might be interested in volume two; It features some interesting songs, such as comparative versions of Ae Fond Kiss, from Burns' time, and the Victorian period.

Sorry, cannot edit post to say "book", not "bool"

Damned typos!
    Thanks for the explanation. I was really puzzled about what a "Bool" was. It's hard to figure out what these Scots are going to say next...
    So, "book" is good. I can deal with that. I fixed the thread title.

It's the dyslexic fingers syndrome. (DFS)

Try typing that when your "refreshed" (pissed)

Will this book be available in stores in Nova Scotia? I would imagine the store could order it online for me, though. This is a great concept of a book you have. Robert Burns is one of my greatest influences as a poet and songwriter and song collector.

Dear JMB

I have not yet released this for worldwide distribution through shops - that process can take a few weeks.

However, you can buy the book through the link provided above and they will ship worldwide.

I have also written volume one, but that is conventional notation only, not tablature. That is also available from the same website

thanks for your interest

A big drawback on the Lulu site is that no table of contents is listed for either of your books. I'm disinclined to buy a book without knowing what songs it contains.

'bool' is a Scottish word!

Michaelr

If you click on the preview button below the cover artwork, you can scroll through the book until you reach the back page, where the songs are listed. Since you mention it, I might include the songs on the book's description - you make a good point.

However, I have noticed that the PDF for some of the book's preview does not always work properly and bits are missed out (not something I can correct) - but the back page is correct

I managed to change the book's description to include all of the songs - thanks for the suggestion
