New tabs added for Buon Fresco and Somewhere over the Rainbow

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

I had requests from a couple of folks for tabs for the above tunes. Eventually got them finished, at great man-hour cost to the company I work for (!). They are done as Jpegs and stored under my homepage pics, gallery is called "Tabs as Jpegs ".  Buon Fresco MP3 is also on my homepage, but Rainbow is a Youtube Video under my name. Hope you find them worthwhile !

Also, thanks a bunch to Conic who uploaded Part 1 of my workshop at Stalybridge Banjo day, as I had a good laugh at my own accent.....!!
