Title: A First Folio
Post by Gerry Smith on Today at 14:34
For the benefit of those who cannot get hold of A First Folio, and those like me, whose copy is falling to bits, would it be possible to make the songs available as pdf downloads? Or would this be another copyright minefield?

I would second this request.

In fact, I'd like to see more tunes transcripted for piano (I know the melody lines are available, but I'm not skilled enough to make them work for me and miss the musical stings of Pete's finer arrangements).

I should also mention that I'd be willing to pay. I download sheet music with Scorch from musicroom.com all the time (going rate about 2.25 per song) and have found it to be a fantastic service that's allowed me the chance to play a lot of songs I would never otherwise have found.

But not, regretably, of course, Song For Amy, Thirty Year Man, Laughing Boy, An Empty Table, Get It Out Of Your Head or Faded Mansion On The Hill.

I think that it would be well worth someone's time and (considerable) effort trying to get a similar service in place here.

Maybe I'm wrong. I don't know how complicated or costly such a thing might be. I just know I've wanted the sheet music to these songs for over ten years and my desire doesn't seem to be fading, so I'm holding out hope that sometime, somehow, someONE will make them available.
