A combination of Patreon support and global lockdown has lit a fire under me to work on tabs recently. So next week I’m planning a bonus week of tabs requested by Patrons. So a big thanks to all the backers. Particular thanks go to March’s Tenor backers:

– Douglas.
– Denise Ghalebi.
– Joseph Freeman.
– Nancy.
– Pauline Leblanc.
– Trevor Mccravy.

Patreon posts in the last month include:

Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up.
Kanye West’s All of the Lights (Interlude)/Violent Crimes.
The Fantasy theme from One Night Ultimate Werewolf.
Lizzo’s Truth Hurts.
– And March’s exclusive for Concert level and up backers: Prince’s Purple Rain.
