Hi,
I received the chords to all songs of Old Ideas from a forum member and will try to put them online today or tomorrow. Check http://www.maartenmassa.be/CohenChords/index.htm for updates!

CK,
I'm a bit slower than usual this time, but will try to put some of them online! The problem is I have to manually edit the spaces to where the tabs are placed, because when I copy-paste your files into Dreamweaver, the lay-out gets mixed up a bit... :-)

If I can't find the time tonight, I can always make pdf's of your files and upload those in the mean time, before adding them "officially" to the Chords.

Hi,
All the songs from Old Ideas are now online at http://www.maartenmassa.be/CohenChords/index.htm .
I hope some of you will learn a couple of the new songs for the Madison Event in August! (Ken, you're allowed to just hum along...)

Take care,
Maarten

Is there anyone out there who can post guitar-friendly chords to Old Ideas songs? Transposing the chords is such a chore for us lazy bastards living in suits...or not;-).
