This website has been in existence since 1998. Over the years, we've managed to compile a pretty thorough list of tunes. Thanks to all who continue to support and contribute. New transcriptions are always welcome, and if you have a different version of a song that's already up, you can send it anyway.

The Request Area is here.

Also, the Desert Island Discs of dozens of Sprouts. Send yours to the email at the bottom of this page.


Note: These songs are not the way the Rheos play them. Most of them are simple chord transcriptions done by dedicated Greensprouts. There are no Martin Tielli solos tabbed out, but most transcriptions are excellent, and make it possible for guitar playing Sprouts to strum along.
