THE POP SONGBOOK No.2
by Tony Attwood
Printed in 1981 this songbook is an ex-school book used by the Manangatang Consolidated and Higher Elementary School.
In the early days of rock 'n' roll it was generally believed that the correct way to perform a pop song was the way it was sung and played on the record. However, gradually people came to see that there was no one 'correct' way, with slow folk tunes becoming fast rock songs with complete rock group backing, and chord sequences, rhythms and even melodies being changed. Sometimes it was hard to recognize the original song!
Today most people accept that it is up to the performer to make what he or she can of a pop song. For this reason you should see the music in this book as merely a set of themes waiting for you to organise some variations on them. Study the music carefully, but then be prepared to modify what you find to produce the sort of music you want to create.
There are informative pieces at the end of each song, about the song, or the singer, or asking questions about what the song-writer was trying to say.
The book is in good used condition with only minor wear.
