Although I’ve loved and admired the music of many singer/songwriters, I haven’t had much to do with them journalistically over the years, so this section is a bit thin on the ground.

Nick Drake’s music, though, always fascinated me, and in the early years I transcribed several of his songs.

In 1998, an authorised song-collection appeared. It was interesting in many ways; but the accompaniments were piano parts, of little use to guitarists.

I therefore present my early transcriptions below.
