The famous versions of many popular songs are pitched higher than an average male singing range such as mine (e.g., most Beatles songs). Since I originally created these song sheets for my own use, some songs have been transposed into lower keys. If you find these keys a little too low for you, then a capo should help you to play them within your range.  A few songs have song sheets in more than one key.

Where the song titles say ‘with Capo’, the key specified refers to the chords that are written on the song sheet.  That key is modified to pitch the song within an average male singing range using a capo, and I have stated on the song sheet where I put it.  You may prefer not to use a capo at all on these songs.
