Hello all, @Peter Gannon & PGM guys

lately I learned to love the copy and paste feature of chords from the Lead Sheet view of BiaB. I am convinced, that ease of copying and pasting the chords from one sheet to another empty one is a perfect time saver for all of us, if we start sharing these amongst us in a special forum.

Please consider the following idea. Let´s have a forum for promoting the sharing of chord charts, the ones we can create by marking all chords from our lead sheet view and then share it (only the chord, no melodies).

We can take advantage of the work another musician made and use it effortlessly. Next time you can be the one, that is profitting from another persons work ;-)


I would expect this to give the Band in a Box community a significant boost of activity with such a forum.

How does that sound for you?

This is how easy it is. I entered the following chords for the Tango "Ole Quappa" - I used the style -Tango^1.STY Tango Style to play it back. Simply copy the chords and paste it in an empty lead sheet - et vóilá......


Chords for Tango "Ole Quappa"

[Chords]

| Am| E7| E7| Am| Dm| Am| E7| Am E7 Am /|

Hope you all like that idea sas much as I do :-)

I think this is a good idea. If one wants the chord progression of someone's song this would be the place to place it. However I would not copy and paste the chords. I suggest that you change that to adding the SGU file. It would contain the style and chords already in the BiaB format.

+1 for that.

Anything that get´s to the goal of avoiding double work for entering chord progressions and promotes the joy of legal sharing i will be fine with :-?

A sharing of chords in one form or another could be very beneficial.
