    In fact, most of the chords can be found in the official song books, the rest is online somewhere, a lot can be found as guitar pro-tabs.
    Lyrics are online, too. I don't use ukulele tabs, and I hate to write them, moreover I'm playing in adf#h
    To play a Zappa song, you need the chords and the rhythm, the vocal harmonies are important, and I use to simplify the bass lines. I can't write that down, I'm good in reading, but not in writing notes...I think it's more important to play along the original to get it

    Thx again, you guys! La perdrix, partridge, there was a tv series in the 70ies, "The Partridge Familiy", I loved it
