HOW TO ORDER

In this section you will find the personal music arrangements done by Clyde Grabski.  They have been created on Finale Notation Software resulting in a clean professional engraver's print appearance.

A midi and/or MP3 file playback of all of these arrangements may be heard.  This will give you a rough idea of the charts, a live band will sound much better, of course.

PDF files of these charts are available for prices shown.  You may send the money via PayPal to: clydeski@hotmail.com  or ask for an invoice.  (California residents please add 9% tax.)  Orders of $30.00 or more may be placed on a CD and sent to your mailing address.  There are no shipping or handling charges.
