You're probably here because you're a fan of the Accidental Tech Podcast (also known as simply "ATP"), featuring misters Casey Liss, Marco Arment, and John Siracusa. This song, taken on as the theme of the show, was written by Jonathan Mann as part of his Song A Day project. To learn more about Mann and his projects, I recommend listening to him on Glenn Fleishman's podcast The New Disruptors, where Mann is featured in episode #51.
Here is Jonathan Mann's original version of this song, as heard in his Song A Day series as song #1546.
And oh, did you know! Jonathan Mann recorded an updated version for Song A Day (#1761), which is a bit less sparse and more produced. I personally prefer the original, but for completion's sake I had to include this as well.
Here's a great little video by Jonathan Mann where he describes his songwriting efforts.

Here's a list of the 173 songs I've added to the site since December 2012. Each song was added by me personally.
Songs are grouped by the year they were released.
My name is David Potsiadlo, and I created Songnotes to share my collection of guitar tabs, chords, and lyrics for my favorite songs.
Since I started playing guitar over 10 years ago, I've often been frustrated by the preponderance of mediocre and incomplete song tabs littered across the internet. To combat this, I started keeping my own collection of notes for each song I learn -- always taking the extra time to make sure accuracy and completeness are never compromised. Years later, my collection grew to the point where I knew I had to share it online with fellow aspiring musicians.
In December 2012, I began designing & developing a website that became Songnotes. Here, I share my personal collection of hand-crafted music notation with all those online. I hope you enjoy.
