Bluegrass Songbooks

This one is pretty cool. Uses the Nashville Method. ... ngbook.pdf

This one has a data transfer throttle and might not be available if everyone hammers it at the same time. It was created by a bluegrass band in Japan, you might find some of the songs have an asain twist to them.

Get them while you can. I am not sure how long they will be around.

Looks like the songbook has been removed. You can find copies in the file section of the Kenny Archive.

God, I miss Kenny. Man, he was smart. What ever....never mind, I think I've heard the excuses...

Anyways, I checked out that Bill Monroe song book, right...but are there are no chords to the songs? How might one go about getting the chords? (forgive me if I am missing something...)

But back to Kenny for a sec. Just reading some of his old posts is inspiring. Makes me want to go grab my guitar right now and practice some of the stuff he talks about. But I'm at work, so the pain of waiting will have to endure for at least another 5 hours :(
