Thread Name: what do you want from a songbook
Subject: RE: what do you want from a songbook
Mark..the people who ask me for a songbook are basically audience members and amateur players who just want to pickup a song at home for their own pleasure, so I tend to think keep it simple, but at the same time provide all the basic info that people want. I also tend to think that the more advanced musicians will take a cd and learn it directly, adapting the song to their own particular style. I'm not technophobic, but I am going to have to pay someone to do the work for me as I seem to spend more time with this bloody computer and less time with the guitar every month;
Oh we're all litle businesses now
It takes all our time up somehow
Where once we were writing or learning a song
We're fighting computers that churn things out wrong
We've a million receipts, our accounts are a mess
And our E mail list fans have all changed their address
Though we work every minute, our more just makes less
'Cause we're all little businesses now.
