'The Fighting Irish' is an oft-heard phrase and there's a good reason for this. Whether on the sports field, in a dancehall or at a wake, the Irish have always shown a willingness to enter into a bout of fisty-cuffs at the drop of a hat! And in more serious fights, the Irish have regularly proven their unwillingness to lie down in the face of tyranny and superior force when trying to achieve an independent Irish nation. Many of the individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice for their ideals are remembered in several of the fine ballads in this book - ballads so fine as to encourage others to take up the struggle where their forefathers failed. In this book you have all you need, to play and sing some of the greatest Irish fighting songs ever written - the lyrics, guitar chords and simple music score. Also included are many stories and backgrounds to the songs - the composers, historical contexts, geographical references and incidents which inspired the songs - and also a CD with the first verse and/or chorus of each song. This book is suitable for those who wish to learn to sing or accompany these great Irish fighting songs, from total beginners to accomplished musicians.
The guitar chord shapes of all chords used in the book are included at the beginning of the book and there are three separate indices: (1) Index by song title (2) Index by CD track and (3) Index by first line. If the reader can't read music, the accompanying CD will provide clear details of the melody of each song. The book is lavishly illustrated with colour photographs of various aspects of Irish life, places and culture and many of the images directly relate to the individual songs, giving a visual and well as an aural flavour to the contents.
