Let me tell you about my new line of print-on-demand tablature pads for guitar, 5-string banjo or 4-string instruments.

I created the first of my unique steno-size tablature pads when I couldn’t find exactly what I needed for taking notes at the banjo camp I would be attending in July 2014. A few manuscript pads came close, but nothing was just right.

So I designed my own, and was going to have my printer friend make just a few.

“Everyone’s going to want one. Print more,” said my wife. So I did. And she was very close to right. After fellow campers bought half the copies I brought with me, I decided to make my banjo tab pads more widely available. But I needed a way to do that with a production cost I could afford, a selling price that made sense and a shipping method that didn’t require me stuffing envelopes and standing in line at the Post Office.

I found it at a print-on-demand service called BrightDoc. And since I think a business should offer more than one product, and BrightDoc makes that easy to do, I designed tab pads for guitar and 4-stringed instruments (there’s a bass on the cover of that one, but you mandolin players can use it, too).

Here’s what makes my tab pads the perfect tool for music camp, group or private lessons or any time you want to write down your musical ideas:

• Steno size for holding the pad in one hand while writing with the other
• Top spiral binding for fast flipping to the next page
• Thick chipboard backing for solid resistance to writing pressure
• At least 6 staves per page — plenty enough for licks, runs and exercises — plus blank chord diagrams for fingerings
• 50 sheets per pad
• Printed one side, leaving room for notes on the back
• Small enough to fit in most gig bag pockets
• Reasonable price, with discounts when you buy 5 or 10 — great for teachers to resell to students

1-4 copies - $4.99 each
5-9 copies - $4.49 each
10+ copies- $4.29 each
