COWPIE's purpose in life is to allow guitar players who enjoy country music (and it's many substyles) to contact one another and swap songs, techniques, and information without wading through all the mixture of musical styles covered in the usenet groups.
Cowpie News was conceived when Greg got on the net and was disappointed at the number of country and western songs available on other guitar archives and newsgroups. Greg began manually handling a mailing list of c&w; guitarists, but it grew beyond his abilities to keep up, so Cowpie was moved to a listproc program. Then Greg got space on an ftp server for the archives, and has been keeping busy ever since.
The tablature uses no frills ascii text that needs to be displayed in a monospaced font (like Courier or Monaco) in order for things to line up properly.
