At last, the DOTS! When I am asked for the tune or chords for one of the "Liverpool Lyrics" folk-songs, I usually write it out in manuscript, scan it, and email a jpeg. So now I will be putting the ones I have done onto this page.
It may look squashed and unclear, but if you right-click, and choose "Copy", then Paste it into an image program, you should be able to see it and print clearly enough to learn or play it from.
I do intend to "write" them in a music program, which will give a much clearer image, but I hope these hand-written ones will do for a start.
Not all the tunes are here - because I don't know some of the tunes!
