The companion CD or mp3 downloads will assist harp players in learning the pieces in this book. Since many of you will want to "play along" as you are learning, Sylvia has recorded most of the pieces slower than they are usually played, and as "straight" as possible, with little or no expression or rhythmic variations.
In the book each piece has two arrangements: (A) an easy version, and (B) one that is more difficult. On these recordings, Sylvia plays version "A" directly followed by version "B". Since the two versions can be played as a duet, so you can play either version along with the recording. The pieces are in the same order as in the book.
The Companion CD and mp3 downloads include all the pieces from this book.
Sylvia Woods has included the lyrics in most of her books of songs, because it is fun to be able to sing-along (at least in your head) while you're playing. However, some of her earliest books, including the first edition of this one, did not include the lyrics.
The second edition, which was printed in 2010, does have the lyrics included.
If you have the first edition of this book, you can download and print a FREE PDF of these lyrics .
