Songs are in the key of C or 1 or 2 sharps. Lyrics and chord symbols are included. 48 pages, spiral-bound.

Some nice pieces, some so-so

I'm not specifically a John Denver fan (he's more my parents' cup of tea than mine), but some of these arrangements lend themselves very well to harp. "Annie's Song" and "Leaving on a Jet Plane," the only songs I was familiar with when I purchased this book, are appealing in their familiarity. I've also become fond of "Fly Away," "For You," and especially "Dreamland Express" (which has a fun calypso feel and even sounds cute on my 22-string lap harp), just based on their sound on the harp- I have never actually heard them sung. The rest of the songs, since I'm not really into John Denver, are kind of unmemorable and boring to play.


Sweet and simple

The arrangements lean on the simple side but that means it doesn't require too much work to play them decently and enjoy the pieces! I use it to give my fingers and brain a break from more difficult repertoire.


A Favorite in the OIC

I use this book often when I play in the Oncology Infusion Clinic. People are either waiting for chemo or receiving treatment and they have to spend most of their day at the hospital. I've noticed people's faces absolutely light up when they hear me play John Denver. His music is so uplifting and positive and provides a wonderful distraction from what these people are going through. I love these arrangements. They are simple and I can easily find the melody and bring it out (something I have to do often for patients that are hard of hearing). I appreciate that she includes the chords above so I can embellish the pieces if/when I want to.
