My Guitar Transcriptions

These transcriptions were all done by ear by me... Well, OK, on many of them I had help from various songbooks, transcriptions from other sources on the internet, etc... They are not complete note-for-note tablatures by any means... Rather, they contain the basic chords for the song printed above the lyrics at the point in the song where they change... In some cases, I've figured out a signature riff or two and notated them in guitar tablature... They're basically made for simple strumming, singing, and having fun... So enjoy and have fun !!!

And if you have any corrections or additions that you'd like me to incorporate into these transcriptions... Or if you live in the Baltimore area and would like to get together and jam to some of these tunes... You can e-mail me at:

Don't know who Crack The Sky are ??? ... Well you really need to find out... Intelligent/artsy yet accessible/catchy songs... Incredible musicianship... Alway just a bit "out there" lyrically, harmonically, and rhythmically... But never so much as to become self-indulgent, boring, or dated like so many of the 70's progressive rock band with whom they are sometimes compared... And still going strong after over 40 years in the business... An amazing band !!!
