    Default I made a free Tin Pan Alley book

    I've been working on this fantastic book (https://drive.google.com/open?id=10Lh0U09tFlyya5wVp3O-5Ry5IYaeQn3J) for quite some time, and at the same time I'm not the best record keeper.

    I've made arrangements off of arrangements and off of original scores and some off of recordings, and clipped pictures off the internet. So the book is beautiful and includes one or two essays I wrote, but without lots of lawyers, at best I can claim is sharing the book for educational and personal enjoyment under "fair use" law.

    That said, please share feedback and criticism, and requests for revision or removal of a particular tab. I did my best to make each tab something new and unique. The book will only be shared as a PDF on forums and on one or two Facebook ukulele sites.

    I'm glad you like it! A few of the tunes are a little rare, but if you're not sure of the vocals or timing you can find the version I list with the artist on Youtube.

    Many thanks for making this available to others - it looks like it took you a lot of work.

    Only had a quick glance through it just now, but it is obviously going to be interesting to read all those old adverts too, from before I was born.

    Timothy:

    I applaud you for the effort you put into creating this. You must have poured many hours into this project. It's wonderful. You did a fantastic job, and love the graphics too. Just one comment. I noticed you threw in some songs from the 60's, so I am not sure if they would fit the definition of Tin Pan Alley. Doesn't Tin Pan Alley mean songs from the 20's and 30's era?
