Sheet Music


Time to RAWK!

Sound Files for All Songs are Over There —>


Read this before proceeding!

    • Our Books: We have Levels 1 through 4a and Christmas books pre-printed and waiting for you at the office. They’re for our students and have plenty of instruction not available online. Save your sanity and your printer and come buy one or all of them.
    • What’s TuffAxe? It’s the chord-melody arrangement. Some people call it “fingerstyle”… 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.
    • Copyright: 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.
    • Standard Notation: In tablature we trust, but we like standard notation too. If you want copies without tablature, we can make that happen (for a fee). It’s the modern world and we own software.
    • Multiple Voicing: Each piece of sheet music is designed to be played in at least four different ways. Level 5 material can have even more voicings.
    • Get a Teacher Ya Lunatic: Just because you find sheet music on the web, 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.
    • Sound Files: You should download the computer generated sound files and listen to them a zillion times prior to tackling each song.

Book 4: Iconic Songs Worth Mastering

Modern songs you’ll spend significant time playing. Most are still under copyright protections to the original composer so we don’t post PDFs here.

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. 😉

Lots More to Cluck About

Book 5 & 6: Multipart Arrangements

If there is no PDF, it’s modern song likely still under copyright protections to the original composer, so we can chat on email about how you can have a copy. Arrangements usually have 7 parts: Lyrics, Chords, Guitar Melodies, Arpeggios, Basslines, Percussion, and TuffAxe (fingerstyle chord-melody). In addition to the conductor’s score and sound file, individual parts have their own sheets and sound files available too.

    1. Annie’s Song
    2. Bad Romance Poker Face Gaga Medley – Lyons
    3. Eine Kleine Nachtmusik with Frankfurters PDF
    4. La Paloma PDF
    5. Lean on Me – Lyons
    6. Lara’s Theme
    7. Lyon’s Arpeggios – Lyons
    8. Melville Castle PDF
    9. Menuett Suite in G major & minor (but not really) PDF
    10. Of A’ the Airts the Wind Can Blaw PDF
    11. Tears in Heaven
    12. Unchained Melody – Lyons

So much more is on the way … but the secretary who puts these together in pretty little packages with bows is “a bit of a drinker” if ya know what I mean.
