Thread Name: what do you want from a songbook
Subject: RE: what do you want from a songbook
Yes, please do bring on the stories! Stories behind each song, stories about yourself, stories about people who've influenced you (and whom you've influenced). You don't have to write a weighty tome, but something to give a little extra dimension to the music would be nice... and would give a little extra boost to sales!
BTW, it would be good to have the melody and chords written in the same key in which the song is recorded on the CD you sell commercially (or with instructions to capo up to the same key) so that people can follow along with the song as they learn it. They themselves can transpose to a key that's more comfy for them if they want to.
