      Hi Folks!
      Thank you for helping spread the word! DO note this is in Standard Notation. There will perhaps a tab version in the future but it would be a while until that.

      Also, you can order from my website directly at https://clawdan.com/product/master-c...ld-time-tunes/

      I try to ship the same day the order comes in by US Postal service.

      Hope to see many of you soon!

      Till then,
      Play Nice,
      Dan
