Subject: RE: Help: Personal Song Book question
My, how all things in time do change. Since my above posting, back in '99, I have dumped the 3-ring binders and gotten a metal file drawer. In it I have an alphabetized section for all songs A-Z, and then, when pertinent, I duplicate those songs and put them into special sections like "Cowboy," "Civil War," "Gold Rush," "Minstrel," etc.

I've given up on fancy set list organizing paraphernalia -when our group does a set list we all write down what each of us wants to do on a slip of paper, give it to that gig's designated "set list guru" (a job which rotates), and they organize them and type them up.

I still feel the same, however, about singing from paper. Don't do it unless it's a last resort.
