Beginning Tunes

The purpose of learning an instrument is to play music, the sooner the better. So, here is the first set of tunes. Try them once you have finished lesson 10. Some may be familiar, particularly if you have learnt other instruments. Each tune has a history, as you will see. They are simple, but sound great if played well. This is why they keep turning up for beginners. Try to learn them all.
