Thread Name: Help: Personal Songbook question
Subject: RE: Help: Personal Song Book question
Personally, I don't like it when a performer uses a book - I think it detracts from the relationship with the audience. I want to say....... "If the song is so good, why don't you LEARN it?"

I use my songbooks for study, to collect and learn, and brush up from time to time. Of course, I let others use them to check lyrics (but not while singing), and freely copy or give them away to anyone who's interested.

But we never, EVER, sing from the book.
