Pseudo Locking Nut For Gibson SG
Jack Casady Bass Schematic You can get this from Gibson, but
while readable, it's a bit fuzzy. Here is my cleaned-up rendition of it.
««««« LYRICS »»»»»
the exception of the first bunch which I either did from scratch or
drastically altered what someone else started, most of these files will
be text dumps of stuff I've found online and massaged (or not) to suit
my voice and/or printout needs. OFTEN I'll put songs into different
keys, some will be messy, I may have selected a section to print out at
such-and-such font/size etc. Some have chords, many don't. I tend to
remember chords more easily than lyrics. The parentheses may indicate
author or performer, I don't always know who wrote it.
Feel free to email me with any corrections. (if you can't make out my address, get me on Myspace)
... especially if you know who authored a song!
And, sorry about the dead links. I'll blame Embarq's stupid "media safe" for that.
Candyman Grateful Dead. I'm doing this in C lately, unusual for me to manage it (more or less) in an original key.
I'll Be Your Baby Tonight Bob Dylan. I'm doing this in D lately.
The Dolphins Fred Neil. One of my latest "all-time-fave" songs. Many have covered this, I like Tim Buckley and Fred himself.
If You Want To Get To Heaven Ozark Mountain Daredevils, 3 different keys, awready forget which one I like for my voice.
Once Bitten Twice Shy Ian Hunter, neurotically transposed to multiple keys.
Hopefully my jail sentence won't be seven times concurrent for posting this (for educational purposes only) in multiple keys!
The Itch Keb'Mo', not transposed. Another one from Suitcase.
Layla Unplugged. Added piano coda from Dominoes version
I'm Coming Home Eddie Boyd, blues.
King Of Bohemia Richard Thompson again.
With A Girl Like You Lovely little Rutles ballad. I transposed it, even though I can just about manage it in C.
I wondered if Eric Idle actually sang it, as shown in the film "All You Need Is Cash". This site says Ollie Halsall provided Eric's character's singing voice.
Friends And Lovers I transposed it, and need to again... New key added
Crawl Back (Richard Thompson) I transposed it
Poppy Red (Richard Thompson) Sweet Warrior (2007) Yeah - I love RT.
Life Is Beautiful (Keb'Mo') From his great 2006 CD Suitcase
Whole Nother Thang (Keb'Mo') From Suitcase
Holding (John Hartford) From Aereo-Plain
Many A Mile To Freedom (Traffic)
First Girl I Loved (John Hartford) From Aereo-Plain
Crazy Fingers (Grateful Dead) One of my all-time faves, from Blues For Allah
Granny Wontcha Smoke Some (John Hartford) From Nobody Knows What You Do

Gary-songs At Rites of Fall '09, Gary gave out some song sheets he'd printed.
I scanned these into this PDF: Devil In Disguise; No Matter What; Cheap Sunglasses; Every Time I Roll The Dice; Too Much Of Nothing; Long Cool Woman; Old Folks Boogie; Fat Man In The Bathtub.
How Long Blues, from Pinetop Perkins & Friends. My lame attempt to transcribe the great man's piano introduction. Finale Notepad format |

Beatles Complete (PDF format) Many songs in one 1.9MB file
Touch of Grey (Grateful Dead)
Country Honk (Stones) Gotta do this sometime!
Far Away Eyes (Stones)
(Chords shown for both G and E although the latter may be slightly
Gary did this in Pawpaw - it was big fun - but I don't recall what key.
I threw it into G for my lunchtime guitar-strumming buddies at work
You Won't See Me (Lennon McCartney) Works well for me in G (chords given).
MY BLUES SPREADSHEET (EXCEL) A few songs spelled out in I - IV - V terms. This could certainly be
expanded on, many songs having virtually identical patterns.
««««« PROGRAMS »»»»»
My Sound Studio (PC multi-track recording/editing program) About 9MB. Small and easy but old and a bit limited these days.
Wondershare, used for video conversion and editing. I bet I got it free from Giveaway Of The Day.
Audacity. This picks up where My Sound Studio leaves off, it's free and GREAT!!
BTW I highly recommend TRANSCRIBE.
This is a great aid to learning songs, especially if you need any help
identifying notes, chords, or need pitch shifting, speed changing.
They're up to version 7 or so, I really like version 6
so let me know if you want that (like if v7 isn't obvious what to do).
I liked it so much I paid the small registration fee. I don't use it so
much for pitch identification, but a friend of mine uses it a lot for
that. I love starting and stopping with the space bar (other programs
can do that too - like My Sound Studio - but Transcribe loads faster).
