....it looks like a basic major chord with a varied bass note :dunno:

Yeah, I think I'm beginning to think the same thing.......I have noted (pun intended!) that I am introducing those 'alternate' notes into chords.....my brain goes into neutral and my fingers experiment.....tried to find a chord name for what I do, but it's often not to be found.....or the chord name is too large it doesn't "fit" in my SongBook file.

Yessir, I am playing it in C, but I will try D......but it still begs the original question......seems like something could be added, like in my first post, to make the song sound better. Any ideas there?

Thanks Eddie that look like a useful app, especially when you have a memory like mine

That's a major reason I bought the applications (about $30 for the Windows version, $6 for the Adroid). I just cannot remember the chords to songs.....I remember the words about 90%, but my old brain just cannot hold onto the chord names. If I can see the chord name (like G7), I remember how to form it, but I cannot recall even the first chord in a song usually!

If one is a performer, which I am not, the android ap on a tablet is really handy - you can clip the tablet on a mic stand, etc. It's a whole lot smaller than a notebook with 200 pages! And the auto-scrolling is nice.

I have really been using SongBook lately. One thing I've started using is its "playlists", which are described in the link someone else posted above. I've organized my songs, for instance, into a Practice, Chistmas, uke songs, guitar songs, etc. It's very helpful once you have a couple of dozen songs converted. The conversion process is very easy.....at least on a Windows PC. Just copy and paste into Notepad (makes HTML into text), although some clean up work with spacing, etc might be required.

I sould like an ad for the product, and don't mean to do that, I am just hoping to find some place to learn more about the ap and possibly swap songs and information, etc.
