Song lyrics & guitar tabs index page

  • Unless otherwise indicated, all tabs were developed by Tony Peart. They have been captured, unedited (except for minor cosmetic changes), from his defunct website. It's obvious that he put a tremendous amount of work into this project. For additional credits and acknowledgments, see his original intro page.

  • Tony's original site included links to additional collections of tabs, chiefly for Sugar and Bob Mould songs, contributed by members of the Sugar internet mailing list during the 1990s. Most of the submissions are clearly speculative or of the "I'm not sure how Bob plays it, but here's how I play it" variety. In some cases there are multiple conflicting versions. I'm on the fence about sorting through that stuff and adding it here, but may do so at a later date.

  • Here are two other pages captured from Tony's site that provide some useful background information:
          — Notes on Playing Technique
          — Notes on Playing Equipment

  • Disclaimer: My own guitar skills are less than modest. I am not in a position to critique or authenticate the accuracy of any of these transcriptions.
