A Few New ABCs Put Up This Morning!
« on: July 13, 2013, 11:45:50 AM »
Check it out!  There is musci beyond Zelda and Final Fantasy and tabs (not that there is anything wrong with that!). If anybody has a request for a tune in ABC notation, let me know and I will try to find it!

I still don't have a good grasp of everything you can do with ABC, but I am trying to learn.

Is there any place I can find notation for the national anthems of various countries? I don't have any single country in mind, I just want to learn as many as possible.

I would also like to see some ABC notation for the song Little Ghost by The White Stripes.

Sorry, all I could find on Little Ghost is lyrics and chords.

I went looking for it too and came up empty.  It's a fairly simple tune and I'm not sure how idiomatic it would be for the ocarina.

It's okay if you don't find anything that will suit the ocarina for Little Ghost, I didn't really expect anything for that one. I would still like to see the chords if you still have it though. Maybe I can convince friends who own other instruments to play the chords for me.

Ask and ye shall received!

G     G
      Little ghost, little ghost
        C             G
One I'm scared of the most
                                    D
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
       G
I'm the only one that sees you,
      C                G
And I can't do much to please you
                         D              G...
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above
...GThe first moment that I met her
      C            G
I did not expect a specter
                                       D
When I shook her hand I really shook a glove
            G
She looked into me so sweetly
       C                G
And we left the room discreetly
                           D             G...
No one else could know the secret of our love
...G
Little ghost, little ghost
        C             G
One I'm scared of the most
                                    D]
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
       G
I'm the only one that sees you,
      C                G
And I can't do much to please you
                         D              G...
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above

...G
Every morning I awoke
      C             G
And I see my little ghost
                                          D
Wond'rin' if it's really her that's lying there
          G
I lean to touch her and I whisper
        C               G
But not brave enough to kiss her
                      D              G...
When I held her I was really holding air

...G
Little ghost, little ghost
        C             G
One I'm scared of the most
                                    D
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
       G
I'm the only one that sees you,
      C                G
And I can't do much to please you
                         D              G...
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above

...G
Though I try my best to keep it
      C             G         
There really was no secret
           G (slowly strum up and down)      D
Must have looked like I was dancing with the wall
(no strumming)  G (              ) C ( ) G (   )
        No one else could see this apparition
(no strumming) C (         ) G (    )
        But because of my condition
(no strumming)    G                  D                  G...
        I fell in love with a little ghost and that was all
...G
Little ghost, little ghost
        C             G
One I'm scared of the most
                                    D
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
        G
I'm the only one that sees you,
      C                G
And I can't do much to please you
                         D              G
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above
                         D              G C G D G
No, it's not yet time to meet the lord above
