Great stuff Nigel.  Your idea of a song book database is fantastic.  It would bring everything together in one place. Keep on strumming!

Onya Nigel, great work I think the group is a great idea. are you suggesting that we have a printed version available as well? Would be nice to to able to pop them in a folder for reference without having to notate yourself... :)

Very useful and nicely done.

my favourite riff...nice one! (-:

Forgot to mention that this riff sounds great slow as well. 

So build the speed up as you get the hang of it.

Also this "Up stroke" is a big part of reggae and Ska music. Put a bit of delay on and Dub it up!
