    Talking Robin Trower Song Books

    Hey Guys,
    I don't know if you are aware but Robin has been so gracious as to allow some of his album song books to be posted online in all their glory. Here is the link:

    http://www.robintrower.com/Song%20Books/song_books.html

    I'm digging being able to access 'Caravan To Midnight,' what a track. I'm not great with reading the treble clef and there is no tab on these books (their the originals from the seventies), but the chord blocks are nice. I guess I'd better work on my reading skills.

    I just thought you guys would want to know. Enjoy!

    Talking Oh yeah!!!

    Hey man,
    I actually started the 'Signature Licks' 'how to' book a few days ago. It's very sweet. I've already nailed the first 12 bars of 'Bridge Of Sighs.' It sounds freakin' awesome. BTW, I really enjoyed the RT concert photos. Most excellent. Be cool.

    Wow, that's a great find. I've had a renewed interest in Trower lately.

    Check out his tone in this video - Sweet Angel

    Talking Very Nice

    Beboy,
    I just checked the video. That was phat as hell. I've always enjoyed his Hendrixian leanings. The wah on that version was wicked. I appreciate it. Oh, and on the song books... no problem. I've already pulled down a few choice tracks to see if I can learn them.
