Tabs for Patreon

Yep, I have set up a Patreon account and I will be posting all my tabs there.  Why JAW, why?  I have lost inspiration for making tabs to give away for free for a while now.  Just felt like so much work and I put them out there and hear no more of it.  But, I like creating tabs, it is part of my arranging work flow... Could I sell them? Well yes, but I don't own the copyright so I'm not really entitled to.  But if I gave them away to people who support me on Patreon, that doesn't seem quite the same.  And Patreon, $3, download whatever you want and walk away, or stay and get new ones and updates, well, that's a bargain! Once upon a time people used to donate to me on paypal, but I haven't seen one in years.

Having people support me on Patreon is inspiring.  I like to share my work!  I have agonised over this for a long time, I first mentioned it back in 2017 and I'm still not sure it is the right thing to do, but I can tell you one thing - it certainly got me cracking on my back catalogue of tabs! I have been tidying up previous ones and releasing them for Patreon supporters.  They are coming out really nice, much nicer than the old ones. I need to write up a general "Playing Jawmunji Tabs" instruction sheet - reminder to self.

But to really make people think they are getting something worthwhile for their initial $3, I decided to make my top watched youtube video from the past year into beautiful new tabs.  Which are:

1 The Ecstasy of Gold (done) 
2 Pachelbel Canon in D
3 Wish You Were Here
4 Losing My Religion
5 Always Look on the Bright Side of Life
6 The Chain
7 California Dreaming
8 Goodbye Blue Sky/Anybody Out There?
9 Rock-a-bye Your Bear / Where's Jeff?
10 Without You
11 Here Comes the Sun
12 Funky Town
13 Reckless
14 Never Tear Us Apart
15 Telephone Line

Yah! Getting there! Find my Patreon here: https://patreon.com/Jawmunji
