I've been to Hell and back in - I bought a round trip ticket. To Hell, Norway that is. Good little blues festival, but I just couldn't get into the Norwegian band names - Blind Arne Bjornson and the Tundra Gators? - Jerry Ricks, Port Townsend 99

Hi all,

Hi all,
I've finished entering a new page under "Musicianship-Guitar" in WeeniePedia.  It is "The Carter Family's Commercially Released Recordings: Playing Position, Pitch and Arrangements".  I will be adding some notes to the page, but mostly wanted to get the tables entered first.  I hope some folks will find it interesting.
All best,
Johnm

Wow!  That is a bunch of recordings!  Fabulous work Johnm, I think I need to go buy some of these recordings, I'm a little light on Carter Family recordings.

Yes, there's more good stuff in there all the time, John D., including a lot of stuff that can't be found elsewhere.

I use it a lot also. In fact I no longer transcribe lyrics and store them locally in text or word files. If I want to perform it I post the lyrics to WC and when all the back and forth corrections are done I make sure to put the final version on weeniepedia.

It's a lot quicker than searching the outer reaches of my hard drives for something I know I transcribed once, on another machine years ago, and copied across to a USB drive somewhere. Cloud computing, I guess.

Hi all,
I've been busy the past couple of days going through the huge backlog of Buddy Moss lyric transcriptions that ScottN did--thanks, Scott!  I've made it through them all, and have entered them in Weeniepedia, 27 songs in the past five days.  We now have 57 songs by Buddy Moss transcribed and in Weeniepedia, with playing positions indicated as well. This must be the most comprehensive collection of information available on the music of Buddy Moss today.  I just thought some of you might be interested.  Go take a look.
All best,
Johnm

Hi JohnM - wow, thanks for all the work on finalizing these...with all the editing of syntax, punctuation, format, spelling, let alone all the relistening to the songs for the misheard words in the original "draft" postings, 27 in five days is an incredible amount of time and effort!  Thanks again for cleaning these up and getting them posted!

Great work guys! A "Buddy Moss Guitar Keys and Positions" would be a nice accompaniment...  8)
