Thread Name: what do you want from a songbook
Subject: RE: what do you want from a songbook
Words (the SAME ones as the CD), Melody line with chords above. I like the words for each verse on top of one another, under the chords/melody, it makes it easier for subsequent verses. Any specific Tunings/ Capo'ings. Maybe a Tab too, if something is worthwhile/hard to pick up the exact pattern etc. Little snippets about why, how, where, as appropriate. Pictures, either suitable woodcuts or whatever that maybe reflects some aspect of the song (An extremely faded picture of an axtremely faded picture would perhaps suit one page) Pix of Harvey playing with Deaf Leopard at the 1986 Concert. A CD of the song collection may also be nice, presuming all the songs are already mastered would not be too difficult, either included or available as an optional extra. JohnB
