Help Please

Postby ronburns48 » Fri Aug 24, 2007 6:11 pm

Hello all,

I may be new to this website and therefore this forum, but I'm far from being a new Yes fan. I went to my first Yes concert back in 1972. Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, I think the year is right...long time ago. A few years ago, I came to realize that I have an addiction. In the process of recovery, I found the Lord and became a Christian. During all the years of listening to Yes, I never realized what the message of the majority of the songs were about. I was much more in tune with the music, not the lyrics. Now, I find myself retracing my Yes roots and reading all lyrics to each song and realizing what I missed in my past. To the point. If anyone knows how to get the sheet music for "Lift Me Up", I would very much appreciate the direction and help. This song as become my personal song for recovery. I would love to play this song for my Celebrate Recovery group so they can see what amazing things the Lord is doing through the members of Yes, then and now....Thank you

Hi, Ron! (it is Ron, right?) Welcome to the site! We're always glad to hear from those for whom Yes has been an important part of their life's journey. As far a sheet music is concerned, my guess is that if you start by Googling "yes+sheet music" you'll probably find what you're looking for rather quickly, assuming that it's been published. If not, you may have to ask around in the musician's areas of this or other sites to see what individual people may have. Good Luck, and Keep the Faith!

I don't believe there is any sheet music, per se, available for Lift Me Up. I did find a guitar tab site that carries it, but this isn't the most reliable tablature site. I guess it will have to do though. Here's the link:

thanks to all those that took the time to respond with help and ideas. it just sounds like I will have to do it the old fashion way, learn it by ear. If there are any keyboard and guitar playing folks interested in helping, I would really appreciate it. I may even throw in some perks if needed.

Hi Ron,

Have PM'ed you back now. Soz - was away on a mini vacation at the weekend. Like others here, I am not aware of any sheet music. However, I did have a MIDI file of it which I gof from:

http://classicyes.net/union.html

[right click save as etc).

Whayt I used to do with Cakewalk Guitar Studio was import the midi file into it and it would lay it out like a multitrack recording. Then I could print out the sheet music for our keyboard player (lazy fekker) and he could start with something to refine.

Probably not the best version -- but a start.

Hope this helps in the quest.

Cheers

Dave.
