    Hard to believe the song is 30 years old.

    That whole Look Sharp album is timeless. Graham Maby is the man!

    I used to play this in a gig - and I could never remember the bridge, but it's ridiculously simple! I always had to write myself a cheat sheet - it got to be a right mental hang up!!!

    Did you want a tab for this, I think I've got the part written our somewhere in my pre-computer pile of notes?

    If you can, post it. I'm sure others would like to see it. I know I would.

    Can do

    It will take a couple of days - a day to find it!!! and then an hour somewhere to put it in the computer. But I'll post it when I get it sorted.

    Agreed. We've been working on covering the live version of
    "Sunday Papers." Will probably do it in front of a crowd for the first time this month. Fun, fun song to play.
     
  8. I found this on some random tab site awhile ago whilst looking for other Joe/Graham stuff - does anyone know where I could find tabs for 'I'm The Man' and/or 'Right And Wrong'?

    Hope this one works for you...

    Well said! I put the "I'm The Man" album right up there, too. I saw Maby live with Joe in the mid-80s--he killed, and he was jumping around the whole time, too. Even Joe said, "He's so good, it's disgusting".:D
