The Mad Scientist's Songbook
The Mad Scientist's Songbook is the first published collection of filk songs by M.A.S.S. F.I.L.C. member Gary McGath. The collection includes subversive, silly, and science-fictional songs which he's written and includes printed music for those with original tunes, as well as for some of the others (published with permission or the music is in the public domain).
The songbook includes the following songs:
Science Fiction and Fantasy
Berton Braley Settings
* printed music included
Warning: Gary insists he is not responsible for guitarists damaging their fingers trying to play the chords in the book. (They're easy on a keyboard!)
