Richard Mellish traditional songs - best for learning? (130* d) RE: traditional songs - best for learning? 30 Dec 18

The OP seems well on the way to making his choices, but let me add my three ha'p'orth.

If he is like me he will find it easier to relate to a song that he has heard someone sing somewhere, some time, whether live or on radio/TV/Youtube/CD/etc, rather than to bring to life a song that he has only seen in print. So there's one consideration.

A second consideration that I apply, though many don't, is to avoid songs that I often hear other people sing. If a song is being sung, that will do, and I see no point in adding to the numbers of people singing it. I would encourage the OP (and anyone else) to apply the same policy.
