If you are looking for a large collection of old time, traditional, and/or Celtic music look no further than this book. I expected to find a large assortment of the usual bluegrass and fiddle tunes for mandolin but was delighted to find that it contained few of those. I have learned so many new songs and have been able to build my own arrangements of them from this book. I think it's a must have for any mandolin player.
