(All These Atoms is lead sheet only. The others are full piano parts.)

It’s available for $20, and includes US Postage. Just call the office: 816-756-0069

I can either take your credit card over the phone, send you a paypal request, or you can mail a check for $20 to Greg Tamblyn, PO Box 45258, Kansas City MO 64171-8258


Eventually I plan to sheetify even more tunes. To do ‘em all would take forever and cost a fortune, so I’d like to know which ones you [music directors, piano players, guitar pickers, singers] might like to have, and what formats you prefer.

  • FORMAT 1 (Simpler): vocal lead sheet, lyrics and chord symbols
  • FORMAT 2 (More complex): the above plus piano arrangement
  • FORMAT 1+ or FORMAT 2+ (Guitar players): do you need guitar chord fingering diagrams?

Here are the potential songs for sheetification. (If you don’t see one of my titles here, then it’s not a song I have the rights to.) Thanks for taking a minute and letting me know any titles you’re interested in, and in what form, by commenting in the box below.

    I want Call The Lamas!! But Stand Like Mountain, Move Like Water and Hallways of My Mind are also faves.

  2. Greg,

    First – you are a gift in this world! Your presence, humor, connection … in addition to your talents at creating and performing music … are powerful. Thank you for doing what it takes to share your gifts! We at Unity of Appleton were SO blessed yesterday!!!

    I LOVE the questions you ask above! As a fellow singer/songwriter, I do have preferences and have experimented with my own music. Personally, I only need format I … as I make up the piano parts from the lead sheet. And, If I know the song, I only need lyrics and chord symbols. I do know how much effort it takes to create the lead sheets and so much more the piano parts!!! I have had David Ezell and Linda Missad create some for me and did one set myself. When it comes to format, what I find most critical is that is is laid out well, the lyrics are large, and the song fits on as few a pages as necessary. When it goes beyond 3, I need to reduce it in order to use it.

    Two other things I think about when I create lead sheets: vocal range and ease of play. I often create a lead sheet with piano friendly and guitar friendly chords – anticipating the guitarist will use a capo.

    Feel free to take a look at the songs and books I have available on my site under “Music Publications”. They are in various degrees of “prettiness” as they’ve evolved through the years.

    Now … as for songs I’d love – a couple because April asked specifically –>

    So Much Love
    Stand Like Mountain, Move Like Water
    Underachievers Anonymous
    Dolphin Therapy

    I think I answered your questions above. Questions? Feel free to connect.
