  1. Anyone willing to furnish tabs for 50`s style R&R songs? Preferably 12 bar in E. Thanks

    Do you have song suggestions? I'd be willing to tab some out if I had song names.
     
  3. Whew, for a minute I thought you were asking for the tab for the Bob Seger tune.

    I would vote for anything by The Platters- GREAT stuff!! My Prayer, Great Pretender, Only You. Would love to see these.
    One thing I noticed about 50s R&R, it's not always a typical 12 bar blues form sometimes there are some off things thrown in. Maybe the 12 bar form was still being formalized at that point and there was still a jazz influence?
