If the Maya are wrong, let's do it!

I propose a tab book separated in 3 string and 4 string sections. If you use linux, in "songwrite" format, for mac and windoze, "tabledit", exporting as pdf. Both are available in free versions.

Tab can be simple melodies or complete compositions, and should specify the tuning used, possibly accompanied by a recorded version.

What style of music? Anything- delta blues, children's songs, Italian pinko-commie songs, folk, black metal, it's all good. Include lyrics if it suits you.

Show what you know!

I promise 2 songs, what about you?

I'm getting started on the tab book, some nice, classic Americana. I'm gonna call it Back Porch Jamboree (click to see it). You're all welcome to contribute!

Just added another song to the songbook: Shortnin' Bread. Check for my posts in the CBG Tabs group!
