A wonderful songwriter that I saw in Boise. Her songs take me from Texas to Ireland.

Welcome to Galen's "NezPerce" Pages

If you like to play the guitar and sing a bit, this is the place to be. In forty years of playing, there have been many times when I've asked, "how did that song go?", or "what were the chords to that?" So, assuming that you've been there before also, I've written down chords and lyrics to a bunch of songs. Many of these are not in the usual "fake books" that you see around so hopefully they'll be helpful. Click on the TABLE OF CONTENTS button to the LEFT.

Also, check out the other links to the LEFT. I've added links to songwriters, and some neat sites for guitar chords and tabulatures.

In addition, BELOW, there are links to some of my own songs, stories, and friends' pages. On a more 'academic' level, check out my INDIAN PAGES. Enjoy your stay here and email if you want. I update this regularly. i created this website in 1997 as a diversion while working on my doctoral dissertation. Yes, i finally finished and I am currently a university professor in Idaho.
