Through my forum (The Gathering) I was persuaded to offer a "Tune of the Week" - a tune on which a few people could work and share experiences and tips. It was beset with problems - once I upgraded the forum software and I lost all previous posts. Also, my work increased and I had few adverse health episodes, and yada yada, yada. Neverthless, Tune of the Week reached 100 tunes, and they are all available to download for free in five volumes. All tunes have guitar chords, and you can choose between standard notation or mandolin tablature.
Any questions or problems, let me know (email me).
