Jack mostly folk Songbook recommendations (38) RE: Songbooks 24 Dec 97


My favorite songbook is the book that contains all my favorite songs. Until I got a computer, I always pulled songs from all the mentioned books and hand wote the lyrics and plotted the chords. I think it's called cheat sheets or fake book. My wife came up with the idea of putting the standard sheets of written songs into those nice plastic protectors. That alows one to change order , add and remove as needed. Now with the computer, one by one they are being added with nice LARGE type for old folkies to see from across the room. The collection of songs come from a variety of sources, most which are mentioned in this thread. rastrelnikov has best dsescribed the BLUE BIBLE RUS better than I've ever heard it described. I can only add that those that use the text as a menu or set list for others is really abusing the book's good points.It might be the most loved/hated book in the world of song. Of course I can't live with out it. Jack mostly folk....
