     others to see the missing words. The -> shows which line and  shows
the lyrical chance.

Ian plays many of his songs using a capo on the 3rd, 5th, and
sometimes even the 7th fret. Mother Goose on the album was done on the
5th, but on last tour I noticed he had moved it down to the 3rd. Most
likely because of his vocal-cord problem. On Jack-A-Lynn the song is
done on the 5th. Above the lyrics are the actual chord names, but with
the capo on the 5th fret for example a G is shaped like an open D
chord without the capo. Also, these are just the chords printed and
not all the hammering of the pull-ups and pull-downs, positionings,
and the leads that Ian or Martin uses. Maybe someday I'll work out a
tablature to show some of the hammering that Ian uses and pass it on
the St. Cleve.
