Finally. FINALLY. I started searching for such a thing starting around 2000.

Nice! Now could you please find one for jazz? Preferably including out of print songs and takedowns of great recorded arrangements of beautiful standards? In the key I would sing them? Not to be high maintenance but gee that would be great.

Well, there always was the Sheet Music Archive, with their somewhat restrictive 2 downloads per day limit.

However, I have to say this one looks like it'll be a lot nicer.

Wow, how many collections of sheet music have been posted in the past month? Great stuff.

DU's comment made me laugh for a good minute, just because it was so strange to see the first comment contain, verbatim, what I was thinking.

You've saved me at least a few hours on average per week, chrismear. THANK YOU.

Many thanks. I often find myself wanting to examine a score while listening. Now, where's the site I can download some extra time?
