  • Computer generated sound files for downloading are located at the bottom of the page. Go There Now
  • Save your sanity and your printer. If you’re planning on joining the orchestra, you should come to our headquarters and buy a book. They’re printed and spiral bound for Levels 1 through 4 and Christmas. They’re cheap and have plenty of instruction not available online.
  • What’s TuffAxe? It’s the chord-melody arrangement. Some people call it “finger-style”… as if you play guitar with something other than your fingers(?!). It’s tough to play, and if you can do it, you’re “tuff” … that’s good.
  • You’re welcome to use the sheets posted here in almost any way that quacks your duck. Don’t sell anything you find on this page or we’ll hunt you down and start dating your sister. Songs under copyright protection from the original composer aren’t posted and you’ll need to email to acquire a copy after a short discussion about your plans.
  • In tablature we trust, but we like standard notation too. If you want copies without tablature, we can make that happen. It’s the modern world and we own software.
  • Each piece of sheet music is designed to be played in at least four different ways. You should master them all.
  • Finally, just because you have sheet music, doesn’t mean you have the tools to make music. Get with a qualified instructor to create a decent skill set and stop wasting time gutting it out by yourself with internet downloads.
  • In progress: The super-secret vault of stuff we’ve swiped from around the web.
  • In progress: Our entire introductory program.
