Hello John,
Me too, I can't download mp3 from Amazon.
And I can't open "Pandora.com" because i'm not living in USA
And I can't see Niagara Falls from my home !!!
Best Regards from France, Jean-Luc

The irony is that I had to buy the CD and the shipping doubles the price. After processing the order, they sent me an email with a $1 promotional credit off my next MP3 download. At the bottom of the same page is the disclaimer that you must be in the continental US to purchase downloads. :roll:

Amazon.ca does not even offer downloads and the price and selection of discs is unreal.

Alrighty then . . .

Freddie: STILL DEAD . . . NO pulse: nada, zip, zilch . . . He's OUTTA HERE ! ! !

SO, wIth that being said, WHY NOT form a CO-OPERATIVE where MEMBERS of this forum LOAN (NOT GIVE, cuz that's ILLEGAL!!!) their music to OTHER members and vice versa ? ? ?

That way EVERY member should have access to WHATEVER they wanna hear . . .

Mike, I've often seen posts (including my own) sit with no comments but have still been read and often times the comments come much later, but most of the time not at all. I wouldn't take it too personally. I like your idea though.
Maybe everyone is waiting to jump in when it looks like it's really going to happen.

It's NOT gonna happen UNTIL ALL who're interested in FREE MUSIC wanna MAKE IT HAPPEN ! ! !

It's NOT rocket science, and with a little initiative YA'LL can make it happen ! ! !

Being this site allows private messages between members, it's PIECE of CAKE to do ! ! !

Ifya really wanna psyc yourself up toda task, just think of allda CHET (and whomever else) that yer gonna have access to for LITTLE or NO MONEE ! ! !

I've just given you 95% of the information you'll need to git 'er done, so GIT 'ER DONE ! ! !

Re: Jack's tabs.

I learned a long time ago with sites like Jack's and days of Yore when Larry Kuhns had a site too...

Get 'em while they're hot.

If you browse them and don't take the time to download them while they're there it's your own d__n fault if they're gone later because of a 'cease and desist order.

I have a lot of Jack's tabs. More than I can possibly learn in what's left of my life but I cherish them because of their accuracy which stems from love of the music.

We really don't give guys like Jack and Larry and Mike Joyce among others the honor and credit we should for providing such resource for us.

I've tried to make Tabledit work and I'm a total klutz.

Thanks, Jack.

Nicely said. I couldn't agree more.

I certainly agree with the value that Jack and Mike add to our passion for the guitar and for their sacrifice. I also agree
that it is a different subject to talk about downloading Chet's mp3 files.
