Subject: RE: Help: Personal Song Book question
Thanks for all your suggestions guys. I'm going to see if I can find some biology paper or braille paper.

I've tried those gummed reinforcements (We used to call them 'sticky holes' in school) but they come unstuck and are too bulky.

Tiger, I don't use the book when I'm on stage, but if I'm singing at a circle among friends then it helps with chords for songs I don't sing regularly. With my tin ear I can't sus out what chord I should use before I play it. I can only hear that it was the wrong one when it's too late.

Kris, I used to have a lace up binder at one time that was perfect, but I've never seen one for sale over here. I suppose I could make one.

Thanks again, I'll let you know what I come up with. - Bert.



Sail, I don't think I could categorize my songs, I'd forget which category the were in. Even alphabetized the often turn up more than once in my book.

I keep a travelling book with songs that are in my everyday repertoire and an archive at home of songs I've been meaning to learn or improve.
