Roy Clarks Folk Guitar Songbook


Learn to play melodies, chords and sing lyrics with Roy Clark’s Easy Folk Favorites for Guitar. This Santorella Publication features 100 folk songs in an easy to understand step-by-step folk guitar method.

Simple fret diagrams will show you where to place your fingers in order to form the appropriate chords. But simply strumming chords will not provide a complete stylistic representation of this unique art form.

Roy’s Folk Guitar Method teaches how to pick, pluck, strum, scratch and hammer the different rhythmic “pure folk” figures. “Folk Guitar” has a specific style of its own.

So take your time, sit back, relax and follow Roy’s guide to learn this incredibly specific style.
