This is a charming book with lots of capo songs. I love the capo and wish we had more books that use them. (Suggestion: a John Dowland book of lute songs with lots of capo for a medieval sound.) The songs are all historical and sound authentic with the capo. You feel like you're going back in time when you play them. The tab isn't just the standard three chords throughout the song. The embellishments give the piece a more polished and pretty sound. It comes with a CD and, as an added bonus, Mark performs many of the songs from these books on YouTube. This is very helpful to hear the tempo, observe finger placement, etc. I also have Volume II which is just as good. These will keep me busy and interested for a long time!
