I found no warning that this music, allegedly in C, actually goes from C to F to Bb to Eb and segues on the piano without noting chords. I purchased this to save myself work for my ukulele group. My work is just beginning.

This was useful, but I think poorly rated. It alerted me that this was not particularly "guitar/uke" friendly throughout, but... if you take it up 1 step to D it falls nicely on guitar and uke from start to finish

A great arrangement and time saver

I am a guitar player, but needed a new / upbeat arrangement of these patrioutic tunes as I had gotten stale doing some of these as sing alongs... The "C" version would not have fallen well on guitar, so I changed to D, downloaded and everything fell nicely on guitar except the Marine Hymn which I moved to "G" major (also plays nice in E on guitar). I have played it for Coffee shops, church settings, and retirement homes and it goes over well. Although the arrangement is pianistic, and one or two fills are awkward on guitar; if you are playing the same things over again this will add a new freshness to your arrangements. I also cut all transitions to 2 measures. Well worth the challange, and the money (got paid to do the shows and collected tips). Highly recommended.

I play the organ for my church. I used this on Memorial Day this year. Got several compliments on the arrangement. That meant a lot to me. I will definitely use it again.

Patriotic Medley

This medley is great to play at patriotic events. My only problem with the piece is that the entire song is chords. Once you bring out the dynamics it sounds nice, and I loved performing this piece. I would just work on the flow when you play it, to make sure it doesnt sound like pounding chords the entire time.
