    hey everyone, for a long time I’ve been looking for the perfect notebook to keep all my tabs and notes for my bands songs. I’m tired of drawing lines in notebooks or using regular staff paper with 5 lines when I only need 4.

    So I finally had a few books made up. There are 50 double sided pages with 4 line staves for tabbing out music for 4 string bass. I have finally found my perfect notebook! I figured I would see if any TBers are interested in purchasing these and I can have a few more made up.

    Any feedback is appreciated 5AEB47BD-E4EA-4FF2-9D1A-2F535E2AD715.jpeg D14B097E-35AD-4282-901F-5190DA6BBE0E.jpeg 921C2D64-1317-417F-AF4F-7AC2B352E6C7.jpeg

    Nice idea, but I would go with a loose leaf binder. Nothing is permanent and a LL allows adding and removing pages whenever needed.

    You were smart. I didn't know they had this until this past weekend when I was in there to find manuscript paper for standard notation.
     
  7. I just use Nashville Number System. Works for me.

    I like to have all the songs clearly notated out for the future or in case I ever forget!

    You might want to leave more space between staves for notes. And, if it's something you will carry with you and refer to again and again, the nasty comb-style Real Book binding lasts the longest.

    Here are the supplies you will need : ruler; sharpie (or other similar fine-line marker); blank, unlined copier paper.
    Heres how to do it : Take the paper and ruler, mark along the left side (holding the paper in 'portrait' view) dots spaced evenly apart, about 1/8" (or whatever distance you feel comfortable with); then repeat along the right side. Using the ruler, line up the corresponding dots and draw lines across the sheet. I group them into sets of two with a larger space in-between for writing title, notes like key; tempo, etc. You should be able to get four sets per page. Next, copy this on a copier (or if your computer printer is a copier, as many are these days), as many as you need. And, as the French say : voila! Tab sheet!
