Handy Songs for the Handicapped:

Scores and MIDI files of religious songs for some handicapped friends


These are public-domain songs which are used in a monthly program in Carbondale, IL, for some very special people. The selections are specifically arranged to be satisfactory when accompanied by guitar, piano, or guitar and piano together and played in a more-or-less Bluegrass style. If you live in or near southern Illinois and would like to participate or just come and listen, just get in touch with me by email or other method (See contact) info and I can give you the specifics. In addition to the regular monthly Gospel sing, there may from time to time be special programs at various times and locations.

Songs for various seasons are also done, as appropriate. There are separate pages for:
- Christmas carols,
- Palm Sunday/Easter songs, and
- Thanksgiving songs.
These are available for download in various file formats. The files contain either complete scores with guitar chords or large print words with guitar chords.

Software to read the scores (NWC format) can be downloaded free of charge from http://www.noteworthysoftware.com/.

Cautionary note about MS-Word 6.0 files: what you see is not what you get. Hopefully, they will print with the chord letters in more or less proper alignment, but expect the words and chords to be offset to varying extents on the screen display. If you change the file to make the chord letters line up properly on the screen, they will then be misaligned on the printed copy. Furthermore, the "Print Preview" is not an accurate guide to what will actually be printed. The margins are not part of the format. Most of these files are optimized for half-inch margins, but for best results the user may need to adjust some of them, depending on the printer. The large-print PDF files were prepared from MS-Word 6.0 files, but unlike the source files, should print properly on most systems.
