Before I was married, I spent Christmas week of 2001 with my parents at their home in Northern Kentucky. I brought a computer with Tabledit, and a thick folder filled with most of the hand-written originals of my workshop handouts since 1996. My parents gave me the idea of entering all the tabs into the computer and making a book.
I spent 6 to 10 hours a day for 5 days entering the music. I went back to school and totally forgot about the project.Finally, just after Christmas of 2004, I came across these tabs in the far reaches of my computer. I spent about a week editing and working on layout. I also spent a couple days recording each of the 73 audio tracks.
The Early Years - Stephen Seifert (1996-2002), includes 73 of my favorite tunes and arrangements. (100 pages) The tunes are labeled Beginner, Intermediate, and Intermediate/Advanced. I've added an introduction that covers techniques for playing and interpreting the tunes. The 73 MP3 audio files cover the tunes exactly like they're written in the book and at a slow tempo.
