Hi there, welcome to the forum. I have moved your post from Chat as this is an About Chordie matter.

On the right hand side of the page you will see the 'SONGBOOK' box (as shown in screen shot below). You click on the down arrow to change to a different Songbook, then click on 'ADD' in the blue box:

There is a maximum of 100 songs in a Songbook, if you have reached this the you have to start another one. I hope that helps.

Clearing cookies regularly and installing an ad-blocker programme should do the trick.

P.S. I have removed the two other duplicate posts.

I will have to check with the site master but, as the songs are not hosted on Chordie, it may be that comments cannot be made there by new Members also. Please try again after you have made a few more normal forum posts and report back with your results.

I was told by a luthier that both furniture and car polish are an absolute 'no-no' for a guitar. They build up a coating and ruin the resonance of the instrument. The best way is to wipe down well with something we all have in our bathroom, a wet wipe, to remove dirt and marks and then finish off with a clean lint free cloth.

I am guessing you tried to post a link as only experienced users can do that. Spammers always try to post links to garbage, so all new users are prevented from doing so in an effort to keep the amount of nonsense down. Join in with comments and observations by all means but no links please, until have have a few posts under your belt.

Hi and welcome to the forum,

If you copy the song to your Songbook and then open the 'Edit' (box on right side of song title) you will have the song in the basic ChoPro format before the processing to show the chords above the lyrics.

Our band had a gig last night to raise money for a local animal rescue centre. Many of the audience had dressed for the part, the show went down very well and we raised €2,400.00 for the animals in the shelter.

The band (in the foyer we decorated) before the show:

To help with this issue we need to know exactly what is happening.

To delete a song from a Songbook you first need to select the song (or songs) by clicking on the grey box to the left of the song title:

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1926/43844294710_ea33fb9f91_z.jpg

Then you then click on the box with the bin image at the top of the Songbook page to delete the song:

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1948/44937635584_f466ede663_z.jpg

Please let me know how far you you can get and list any error messages, or say when things stop happening.

I am preparing stuff for our band's Halloween gig and we wanted to play some scary Halloween songs in the interval. One of these songs wanted was The Monster Mash and I found a copy of what was advertised as the original version, not the Bobby Pickett one, so I downloaded it (and a couple of others) mixed them onto one track late last night sent it to Julia, our lead singer, for her opinion. This morning I took the ten minute recording I had made and copied it to make a repeating track to last an hour, Then, for the first time, I listened to the tracks to check for evenness of levels.

Suddenly I though I heard the 'f' word in Monster Mash, so I listened closely. The track I downloaded was absolutely disgusting so I had to contact Julia rather rapidly and tell her not to listen to it as it is not fit for a lady to hear. Too late!! She listened to it earlier and was laughing her socks off as she knew how utterly embarrassed I would be sending it to her.

This is one very red faced Roger lol 

Sorry all, I have not completed my challenge(s) and I will not be able to do before the end of the month, I have not even had time to listen to other's challenges yet. I have sorted a out a metal song but I will just not have time to finish learning it and record it before the end on the month. However I will get it done as soon as I can and post it late.

My problem is that I run a small band and we have a Halloween gig and are trying to raise in excess of a thousand euros for a local dog rescue charity. There are several new songs, and I have to sort out the key for the vocalist, write the lyric/chord sheets and because we have inexperienced ukulele players I sometimes have to transpose for them, I have also had to find and record horror sounds and scary songs for the pre-performance and interval.

I need 48 hours days at the moment smile

Sorry again,

Roger     

The short answer is no you cannot. Chordie is a search engine and finds that songs that are available on the internet but then re-formats them so that they are easy to read and transpose.

If you have a song you will have to upload it to a site that accepts them (but in 'ChoPro' or 'chord pro' format) and in a short time it will be available here also.

Sadly that is not our Per (his name is the Nordic equivalent of Peter) and I have had the pleasure of meeting him a while ago when he was on holiday here in Portugal.

The basic difference is that an acoustic amp is built to eliminate (or at least reduce) feedback, so an acoustic amp will work fine with an electric guitar but and electric amp and acoustic guitar might have feedback issues.

Roger     

This is not a song that I know too also. However I did enjoy listening to it and have no need to listen to the original, well done Richard.

Hi Russ a student of mine had his Ibanez damaged though flying it from Sweden without loosening the strings and he gave it to me to break for spares.

As you can see from the last two pictures I surprised him by returning it two weeks later. The wood filler in the neck could well be a natural colouration and the damage on the front of the headstock was hidden by a false truss rod plate.

He said it played better than it had before and threatened to break a couple more that he had (I had done little work on the action smile) and he is still using it 8 years later.

Clearing your cookies usually sorts this one out. Try and see how it goes Jan.

Easybeat challenged anyone to record a Chordie original song but he did not say how recent, so here is one from February 2007 lol
