My Guitar SongbookThe Tab and Notation files are my own work and represent my interpretation of the songs. These files are put together and formatted in Notepad, transformed to MS Word and converted to pdf format to save or print the composition.

The Song audio files are gathered from my personal music library. I do not own the copyright of the songs and audio files, all rights belong to the copyright holders – no copyright infringement is intended.

The Lick samples are gathered from talented online teachers and tabbed in the key in which they were found. Many have been transposed in the Key of Am - at the 5th fret (a popular key when playing the Blues) or the Key of Em - the "guitar key" (all open strings belong to this scale and the most common key for Delta Blues).
