Thanks Eddie, you have just switched on the light in my muzzy head !

I have been reading and taking everyones tips on board.  That is the easiest explaination ever...I now understand some of my first lessons was Tabs.

I learned "The Star of The County Down" this way !!, It still instinctively comes to me when i lift the guitar.  I will highlight and print and add to folder, for more fuzzy head days!.
