Songs for all Seasons is Mark Holland’s Native American flute song book featuring his personal selection of songs from his massive collection of published works. Written in Nakai Tablature, Toubat Tab and Finger Tab.This marvelous collection of songs showcase Marks’ talents as a songwriter and performer. This easy to play 76 page song book, features ten of his original compositions transcribed in Nakai flute Tablature and finger charts for the six hole flute and one song transcribed in Toubat tablature and finger charts for the diatonic six hole flute. No matter what level of flute player you are, you can play these songs.
Also included is the first ever “Flute Karaoke” CD! A play along companion CD featuring four songs with no flute tracks. All the other instrumental portions of the songs are on the CD so that you can blend your own flute playing style with the music. All ten of the songs can be heard on Marks original recordings: For Such A Time As This, Visions and Dreams, Four Winds, Born Out of Silence, Progressive World, Four Winds & Storytelling, Greatest Gift. You can play along with Mark by listening to these CD’s and following the song book. As a bonus three songs have chords to allow the flutist to play with an accompaniment guitar or piano.
A note about the included CD. It contains the backing tracks for 4 of the songs in this book. It's like you have Autumn's Child playing the backing tracks using guitar, cello, percussion, etc. without the Native American Flute. The music for the flute is written in the book and you provide the flute part. They're calling it "flute karaoke" in the book. Suffice it to say, the musicianship and arrangements are world class as they are the backing tracks you hear on Mark's records.
PS: This book is out of print. I only have a few copies. Once they're gone, they're gone.
