New Tunebooks!

I've gotten a slew of new tunebooks recently, with a few more yet to arrive. So over the last week pretty much every minute of free time I've had I've used to go through these books - getting a feel for some new songs to play. Sometimes playing through 100+ tunes in one evening...many for the first time! I've been making note of the tunes to my liking and will go back and look at those in more detail.

The new tunebooks include:
Voyager Records' The Mandolin Players Pastime: A Collection of Reels, Hornpipes, Jigs, and Other Dance Tunes - Phil Williams
Voyager Records' Repertoire Builder Mandolin Workshop of 25 Mostly Familiar Tunes - Phil Williams
American Fiddle Method: Canadian Fiddle Styles - Brian Wicklund & April Verch
Old-Time Festival Tunes for Fiddle & Mandolin – Dan Levenson
School of Mandolin: Irish Mandolin – Joe Carr & Michael Gregory
Steve Kaufman’s Favorite 50 Mandolin Tunes G-M
Steve Kaufman’s Favorite 50 Mandolin Tunes N-S
Steve Kaufman’s Favorite 50 Mandolin Tunes S-W

And for Ukulele:
Hal Leonard Ukulele Method Book 1 - Lil' Rev
Hal Leonard Ukulele Method Book 2 – Lil’ Rev

I think all of these tunebooks include play along CDs. I'm really just scratching the surface on all these books, and I have a few additional books & CDs on order as well. I'll follow up with some more info once I've had time to digest these better.
