Sheet Music

The Good Stuff

MormonGuitarSound files for all sheet music are over there ⇒

Read This Before You Begin

You’ve got 220 songs to knock out. Track your progress: PDF Practice Logs: PDF

headbanger Sound Files: Download the sound files and listen to them a zillion times prior to tackling each song. The sound files are to your right. If you’re on your phone, they’re down below.

headbanger Standard Notation: 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.

headbanger What’s TuffAxe? It’s the chord-melody arrangement. Some people call it “fingerstyle.” It’s tough to play, and if you can do it, you’re “tuff” … that’s good.

headbanger Multiple Voicing: Each piece of sheet music is designed to be played in at least four different ways. Level 5 and 6 material is meant for ensemble work and usually has even more voicings.

headbanger Our Books: We have pre-printed books waiting for you at the office. They have plenty of instruction not available online. Save your sanity and your printer and buy them.

headbanger Copyright: Don’t sell anything you find on this page or we’ll hunt you down and start dating your sister. If there is no PDF, email me to acquire a copy after a short discussion about your plans.

headbanger Get a Teacher Ya Lunatic: Sheet music won’t make you a musician. You need tools. Get a qualified instructor and stop wasting time gutting it out by yourself with internet downloads. You really are developing bad habits without somebody to keep an eye on you once in awhile.

headbanger Stoicism: The problem is not a problem. Our attitude toward the problem is the problem. Start right now. Do what you can. Analyze the results. Start again tomorrow. If you play one hour a day every day, you’ll master the guitar in just over 27 years. If you play less than that, it’ll take longer. Enjoy the ride and have realistic expectations. If making music were as easy as those “play guitar the easy way” advertisements suggest, everybody would be doing it. It’s not easy, and they’re not doing what those ads say at all. You’ll need to plan on many hours of gutting it out with a good sense of humor, some patience, and a willingness to keep showing up.

Book 4: Iconic Songs Worth Mastering

We’re developing multiple books of modern songs you’ll likely spend significant time developing into something worth presenting to an audience — you know, your cat. Most are still under copyright protections to the original composer so we don’t post PDFs here. Should you like to tackle these songs, we’ll need to chat over email to get you started. Buying the pre-printed book will save your time, your printer, and your sanity, but hey, we know you’re cheap, er, thrify. Stop by the shop (call first!), bring some cash (and a pretty girl), and let’s set you up for a healthy amount of musical aggravation and beauty. You’re lucky to know us. 😉
