Arrangers Notes:

The arrangements in this songbook are designed for a piano emulating
the strum and picking patterns of the guitars while also capturing the
nuanced melodies, countermelodies, and stylistic feels. The melodies
are notated one octave higher than Dan sings to keep the arrangements
in a brighter register on the piano, although Veda’s vocals in The Indie
Queens Are Waiting are written at pitch. Dan took care to curate the
guitar chord diagrams himself to reflect his often-unique voicing. The
capo details are included as italicized guitar symbols with the concert
pitch chords placed underneath, most interestingly is his use of two
capos on the opening song, Road Regrets. The exception is Set The
Sails which is a direct transcription of the piano that was played on the
original recording. The arrangements range from quite easy to somewhat
advanced, however care was given to ensure playability with oversight
from Dr. Eileen Padgett (DMA) and Dr. Elizabeth Eccleston (DMA).

It was a pleasure and an honour to create this songbook.
Enjoy, and remember to sing your stupid head off!
