Thread Name: Help: Personal Songbook question
Subject: RE: Help: Personal Song Book question
It's such a relief to see that others have the same problem. When you have poor eyesight, bifocals, weak memory, and built-in stage fright, which exacerbates all of the aforementioned, you gotta have something for a crutch! Mine, like others, is simply several 3-ringed note books and non-glare plastic document covers. I usually enter my songs, along with chords, in 14 pitch type so I can see in poor light conditions. At the bottom of each song I have a few lines (11 pitch) of info about the song, where I learned it, and who performs it best. Bulky, yes, but the added weight helps when out of doors. My note books are entitled "Want to Learn", "Learning", "Know", and "Song Swap" (I co-lead a song swap once a month).
