Well that will teach me to read the announcements properly before replying. I thought I was to just suggest the genre and let everyone choose their own songs, not me choose the songs as well!! lol lol lol

My initial thoughts for songs are either rather difficult vocally, or chord wise, so I will do a little research and post my suggestions later.

OK Songbooks should now be able to be published. Please let me know if there are any further difficulties.

I have moved this thread here as it is an About Chordie issue.

There is only one person able to sort this, Per the site owner, so I have dropped him a line and informed him of the difficulty.

Thanks guys.

Bill I am sure it is Raquel that you are talking about and unfortunately, as so often happens here, schooling has got in the way of her music. When kids want a good education here they have so much homework that it takes over everything. I did see her a couple of weeks ago working a summer job in a local supermarket whist awaiting to go to university.

Graham, I have found a clip on a friend's Facebook page but the audio is not very good: https://www.facebook.com/pradovillas/vi … 6301/?t=12

I woud not worry about the volume control on this device. It is a sealed unit and the crackle heard when adjusting volume is usually dust and dirt on the internal contacts, so the chances of crackle are very slim. As for the sticky pads I would not worry about that either. I have pick holders on all my guitars held on with a double sided sticky pad which will be very similar, if not identical, to what they use. To clean any residue when I remove them, I simply use what I always use to clean a guitar body, a bathroom wet wipe (you know the ones you normally use to clean an unmentionable part of your anatomy lol).
I would say, "Go for it".

I had a gig with the band I belong last night and, as we knew that there was going to be a songwriter in the audience, we decided to sing one of his 'number one' hit songs from 1967. He then came on stage with us, said a few words, and asked us to repeat it so he could sing it along with Julie our lead singer. The song was Puppet On A String and the writer is Bill Martin.

The left hand on a accordian has two rows of bass notes and if it has more rows they are chords. here is some info and a layout from Wikipedia: https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Accordion/Left_hand

The accordian used here in Portugal has buttons for the right hand instead of a keyboard and I guess is more difficult to play.

Roger

Great to hear from you again Bill, but please don't get jealous if send a great big cyber hug to the lovely Dondra because I am sending a cyber 'man hug' to you too. smile
No problems with your communication and 'He's Got The Whole Word In His Hands' is a song I know well as it is one the two songs I send a student home with after their first lesson (the other being 'Tom Dooley' as they are both good songs with just two chords). Strangely enough most Portuguese students know He's Got The Whole World as it was used in the TV advert for the Portuguese electicity company and I will usually insert my students name in the 'He's got you and me brother/sister' line.
Take care, Roger.

You definitely can have more than one songbook and opening a second account to have a second, as you have found out, can lead to difficulties. If you have used the same e-mail address for both there will be complications but if you used a different one I can hopefully sort it for you. Please write to me privately with both account names and e-mails used and we will see what we can do.

Roger

I have never used anything other than paper but some friends of mine use an i-pad and have a scrolling programme. You have to set the tempo (in B.P.M.) of the piece for it to scroll at the right speed. I find it a/ hard to read (I really like my bold print A4 paper) and b/ difficulty knowing where I am when I have looked away as the place I was looking has moved.

Roger

Roger, my two choices are Love Song and Lullaby.

Hi and welcome to the Forum.

As everyone else can add songs and you cannot, it is not a general problem so you will have to be a little more specific to enable us to help you. Please state, step by step, what you are doing so we know where the difficulty lies.

That is a bummer. I bet your buddies were disappointed with no music from the minstrel after day one.

John, I will ask you the same as Pamesposito. Do you have any apostrophies or anything other than letters and numbers in your song books name? Apparently this can cause a problem and as mine is "Roger's Songbook" it is causing my difficulty.

I have just completed the old dodge of clearing cookies and restarting windows but no good I am afraid. I can get as far as here:

https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1826/42198031435_11c16e7919_b.jpg

but then I cannot change what songbook to move it to nor move to the "Temp (79)" shown. I can click on the arrow beside "Test book (9)" to select another songbook and move away from this page but nothing within the actual 'move song' contol box works.
