    OK, this is the truth; I swear on my 2 titanium and Teflon knees. I don't know where this came from, I can't find any reference to it on amazon or Google or books-in-Print, so if it is not OK to put this out there, just whack me in the kneecaps and I'll remove it.

    Wow, what a treasure-trove. I've been listening to almost all of these for 40 years or more. Fabulous! Where did it come from?

    A friend of mine found it in some Internet search, I dunno, and he sent it to me. I don't have a title page so I have no other publishing or copyright info.

    Well, I just downloaded and printed them out. I'm going to start with Golden Earrings and the Debussy, two that will kill audiences for sure.

    I have found lots of things and copied them from the internet....the thought of them being legal or not did not enter my mind...only that what it was just great to have..

    One of the most influential books I learned from was 'Mel Bay Presents The Complete Johnny Smith Approach to Guitar'. He was so advanced - right off he pointed out the notation issue (guitar not being a solely treble clef instrument). This helped me immensely and opened up a lot of sheet music I might not have had considered as sources. Plus, there's "Walk Don't Run" :-)

    That long number at the beginning of the file name suggests it might have come from scribd.com.

    Thanks for that clue, John Ross. I just went to Scribd and did a search for "johnny Smith"....duh, 10 trillion links.....and put that number in, but nothing comes up with that number in it. I dunno.

    It's there, I found it (just to practise my Internet sleuthing skills), but you'll have to take my word for it, I don't want to link to the page. Scribd - or its users - can be a bit naughty sometimes, but it's damn useful. Anyway, that doesn't mean you had to get it from there, you could have got it indirectly from any number of file-sharing sites.

    I did not find it myself; it was sent to me from one of my friends, and I do not know the source. I am also wary of Scribd, but I only put this up after doing a search for it on amazon, google, and Books In Print, and not finding any info on it. I don't know where it came from.

    In order to avoid the mentioned problem with Adobe (XI in my case), I didn't try to open it, rather I saved the file in my desktop and then I opened it with Adobe, and it worked!

    Not this stuff, transcribed off the records. There was a Guitar Interpretations book published by Charles Colin years ago but it wasn't from his records.

    The Scribd files indicate that these pieces were transcribed by Dan Towey who has done some books for Hal Leonard. If anyone knows Dan, they might check with him to see if there are plans to publish.

    The Man with the Blue Guitar was available on CD as part of The Complete Johnny Smith Roost Small Group Recordings box set from Mosaic Records. Unfortunately it was a limited edition set and has sold out. Hopefully it will be reissued in the near future.

    The Mosaic box set comes up regularly on ebay. Worth every penny, like many other Mosaic box sets.

    I paid $4.00 to get the transcriptions of AN and IOF from a certain company, and it wasn't even in standard notation.
    They used fret board charts to block out each chord; very difficult to read.
