Having found only 27 tablature files for Lightfoot songs at the online guitar archive (http://www.olga.net) I went in search of a more extensive collection. This site linked to the Lightfoot! page (http://www3.pei.sympatico.ca/wfranci...foot/index.htm) so I decided to check it out. To my suprise, chord progressions and lyrics were provided for EVERY SINGLE Lightfoot song on record. Well, perhaps not EVERYTHING is there, but it's darn close.

Having noticed at the OLGA site that many, if not most of Gord's songs, use alterate tunings and require capos, I wondered why this information was not listed on the Lightfoot! page. Has anyone used this site to learn to play his songs, and if so, are the tabs presented on it accurate? The Lightfoot! site makes them look pretty easy to play, maybe a little too easy...

I find on the lightfoot site, most of the times they have a G7, i think a G sounds better. They don't mention different tunings, but by listening to the song, you can see where the capo goes. Still to have every song, it's not worth complaining. I've downloaded every tab that's there
