Cowboy Song for Harmonica (with online audio) by Glenn Weiser contains 27 traditional ballads arranged for the 10-hole diatonic harmonica.
The harmonica is indelibly associated with the popular image of the cowboy, playing his plaintive, warbling melodies to wile away the evening hours and calm the cattle, as music was known to do, after
the herd has stopped for the night. With few options for entertainment along the trail other than poetry,
dancing and music, it’s no wonder that hundreds of songs emerged from the Old West telling of the cowpuncher’s life, the exploits of famous outlaws, and other aspects of frontier existence.
All songs include music notation, harmonica tablature, guitar chords, lyrics and online audio files with
acoustic guitar backing tracks.
