What Are Song Notes?
The Phish.net setlists file has song-specific notes in addition to show notes. As with the show notes (and unlike in the setlists themselves), we also use abbreviations in the “song notes,” which are basically “footnotes” that appear next to the songs in a particular setlist. They are used to denote guest musicians, teases, and any other information of special interest concerning the version of the song in question. Although song note information is duplicative of information that appears in the show notes, the song notes quickly provide information about a particular performance of the song.
