To clear up a possible misunderstanding. The 'Search' button searches the Forum comments for the keyword typed in; it will not search the library for a particular song or artiste.

The first thing to do is to clear your cookies as they can sometimes cause weird problems that no-one else is getting. Then try again but, if not successful, please give details of where you are ending up; to help, specifics are needed not vague comments.

Take care and stay safe,

Roger     

Great minds!!! smile I wrote to them yesterday to check up on them.

nellieeskinu, have you read the posts? You do not say if you have the same difficulty after clearing your cookies. Roger     

Good point Phill, the maximum in any one book is 100 songs but you can then start another book, I currently have three on the go.

Roger     

Sorry to hear of your problems but you must log in before trying to save a song. If, as I suspect you were logged in and it was a second log in request, then clear your cookies. This will usually resolve this issue but if you are still having difficulties then please report back here.

Sorry for your loss Joe, but it was a beautiful tribute to your dad.

Here in Portugal Churches and meetings are closed, restaurants and coffee bars client numbers and opening times are restricted and stores are limiting the number of people allowed in, so it is rather chaotic.

On a lighter note, Per has come up with and idea so look out for a post from him and see what you think.

This is a clip of us (Band On The Run) from Saturday's Christmas gig with the Salvation Army at the theatre in São Brás and with it I wish you all a very Happy Christmas.

I am afraid there is a bug causing this. It is known and being addressed at the moment but hopefully will be sorted shortly.

Jim, no singer sings every song in the same key (I have songs that I do in, A, Bb, C, D, E, F, and G smile). The range of the vocalist's voice in conjunction with the melody range of the song is what determines the correct key. That might sound rather complicated but what I do is a 'trial and error' method; try it in one key and, if the singer is not comfortable with it, try higher or lower until you find what suits them.

P.S. Scott I was shocked to hear of Bee Rad's sudden passing (I met him at Chordiestock 3 and he was a Member here but never posted). I have say that I have never seen so many wonderful comments about anyone after they have gone as I have about him on Facebook this week. I wish I had known him better.

I seem to have less and less time since I retired. I am running a band (me and seven ladies) and I have all the songs to sort out, find the correct key for the vocalist, produce the backing tracks (we have no drum or bass player) and write the song sheets (often in a couple of keys so the less experienced players can use a capo in difficult keys).

I do visit here every day but generally in an administrative role with no time to comment. Maybe after Christmas when the gigs have slowed down I will find more time to join in.

It is very strange how it pans out. I have dozens of songs on YouTube which usually get less than 100 hits unless it is one of my students and they tend to get several hundred. I do have four exceptions though, all covers except the last one:

14 K The Ballad Of Springhill (an old Peter, Paul and Mary song)
4.2 K Unchained Melody (an old Righteous Brothers song)
1.6 K Let It Be Me (an old Everly Brothers song)
1.2 K What A Friend We Have In Kitty (an original James McCormick song first seen on Chordie)

Hi Jim,

They should automatically be sorted alphabetically. Try clearing your cookies as that can solve a number of issues and report back with the results when you have done so.

Interesting. Interesting to see the newly invented styles of music emerging and gaining popularity however I had never heard of 'Chanson' music and had to Google it to find out what it was. smile

If my memory serves me correct, Jeff (Topdown) had one when I was at Chordiestock, but it was a while ago and I may be mistaken. If he does not respond here drop him a line, but I agree with the others, you need to play one and get your own feelings for one.

This is usually a 'cookie' problem so try clearing your cookies and hopefully you should be OK. Please report back with the results.

Just an update:

I have been in contact with Per this morning and this issue is turning out to be a little more problematical than first thought. It is being investigated and hopefully there will be a fix soon.
