hi everybody!

[...]

ok, ive calmed down a little bit to write about the cons songbook that
i received last week.  i ordered it 6-7 weeks ago, btw, its taken this
long for airmail postage!  anyhoo, its well worth it.  if you look
beyond that scary girl on the cover, the contents are great.  lots of
colour photos of the new band, during the recording process, backstage
and some of which weve already seen from the tour diary that amy wrote
for their website a while ago; it features some of the halloween photos
from there.  i did note that of the 15 colour photos, amy only appears
in one of them.  this suggests to me that maybe amy took the other
photos as the majority of them do not have photo credits.  there are
also black and white photos on the lyrics page of each song and theres
a pretty funny one of amy sticking her tongue out at the camera whilst
leaning into view.  

as for the musical content, well its split into two parts again  the
main vocal and piano parts with the guitar tab section at the back.  i
like this format and it works well for me.  all the songs on the album
are featured, including philosophy of loss, which is fully tabbed out.
im working on that one now!  all of the songs have been tabbed out
according to the instrument used, so all you mandolin, bazouki and banjo
players will enjoy that.  theres a very funny (to me anyway)
description of how to turn your guitar into a mandolin.  heres a
snippet  to play the mandolin part for gone again on your guitar, your
high e string should remain tuned to e.  lower the pitch of your second
string a whole step to a.  next tune your third string down 2= steps to
d.  tune your fourth string down 3 1/2 steps to g.  now place your capo
at the 12th fret and play the parts on your first 4 strings.  your
guitar is instantly transformed into a mandolin!  hmmm, yeah, okay.
;-)  so far, all the transcriptions sound pretty accurate, although most
songs seem to incorporate alternate tunings, so its not like pick up
your guitar anytime and jam easily, but its all good fun.
