Subject: RE: Chords Req: The Naked Highwayman
Great point, jonm- when a song is readily available in a songbook, especially from an independent artist, it's never a bad thing to actually help the artist out by making a purchase. True, sometimes you have only a passing or casual interest in a song, or don't want a whole book's worth of material, or it may even be way beyond your ability once you see the chords (especially pieces composed on instruments other than the guitar), but just pointing out, this is all part of how these guys make a living...
As a songwriter, I also enjoy picking up songbooks now and again for things like changes I hadn't thought of, things like that.
