Found this if you want to use it: "In the standard tuning (EADGBE) the open chord is A11/E."

I do indeed. Roger showed me a trick for adding your own music to one of your songbooks. Goes like this:

1 - Add a song to your book. (Maybe pick a song with a title close to yours but your call here.)

2 - Select the edit function.

3 - Paste in your song over the song you added and fix any formatting if needed.

4 - Preview to make  sure it looks  correct.

5 - Save it.

That's it! Good luck!

Re: rocking Blues song I wrote - Almost

nicely done Jim. i never realised you knew rude words. so glad you *'d it out otherwise we'd have to ban you...no just kidding!

i've just had a quick strum, you said it's a rocky blues, i may have gone a bit fast? we'll have to wait till you put it up on soundcloud to know how you planned it. good song though

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

Jets - Thanks   that works great !!
I can't change the persons name as it appears in song book list   - although when it opens - it shows mine   but it doesn't matter.

Thanks again for the tip !


Also - thanks to Peatle's observation and encouragement- I made a lyric change in the first verse - much better !
