Hi, friends.

I'm not feeling so well today, so I decided to stay home. Hmmm ... what makes me feel better???? Fluting, of course, and learning new songs. I decided to learn a new song. I first heard this song on a talent show on TV (American Idol? America's Got Talent? The Voice ???) and I liked it.
Last night, I heard it from the original artist (I think?) and I realized I really, really liked it.
I am currently learning it - been working on the attached tab sheet for over 3 hours ... mostly formatting the spacing, etc. I've GOT to learn a better way to get different-sized spaces without changing the font size here and there.

I find that tabbing out songs helps me learn them ... specifically, it helps me memorize them. I can play just about anything, as long as I can remember enough of it to play - sadly, my memory is pretty bad, so it takes a lot of repetition to sink it in (my wife hears these songs in her head in her sleep!)

ANYWAY ... I am working on "Human". It is a long song, with some neat change-ups in its later verses. I have only done the main verse, thus far. I will eventually get around to the other parts, like the powerful "I'M NO PHOPHET or MESSIAH" section, but not today.

For those who like this song, my WIP here should get you started (I play it with embellishments, but don't know how to show such things in the sheet). I hope you find it useful and well-prepared enough to guide you to the actual tune. As it is a WIP, please let me know if you find errors, or have suggestions - THANKS.

Cheers,

Scott
EDIT: Man, I think I was running a fever before! I've revised it to be a tad lower and not use the half-hole but rather the fundamental ... still a WIP

Scott,

Tabbing is just what the doctor ordered for brain stimulus. Hope that you are feeling better.
