PDF booklet for African Polka

I have assembled a little PDF booklet for “African Polka”, a song which I have blogged previously here and here and .

My booklet has the original sheet music from the old olden days with chords added to make it easier to jam on. It has an introduction talking about the tune in general. It has new sheet music for my own version of the song. This new notation has less extraneous detail and more white space, so is easier to read. There are transposed versions of the new notation for Bb instruments like trumpet and for F instruments like alto horn. My booklet also has the Lilypond source code for my own version.

I did this as a hack, I guess. It’s an experiment in making ebooks for music.
