Chord charts

PlayTab is a personal 'invention' of mine. I started writing it in 1995 because I wanted chord charts but there were no tools that did anything even remote to that.

Quote:Obviously, there is only an advantage in incorporating any of these formats if transposition is supported.  Without being able to transpose 'on the fly', it's a waste of effort.

Exactly. This is the crucial point.

Quote:If I need to write a chord chart, I use Band In A Box.

Ah, good ol' Band-in-a-Box... I never used it to produce chord charts and if I may be honest, the sample you included lacks the elegance of compactness.

And it's expensive (at least it was, last time I bought it. And the upgrades... I never upgraded beyond version 12a in 2006.) I hardly used it since I generally do not run Windows.

Having said that: BiaB also has a wealth of songs already available, but its file format is proprietary and much harder to crack and implement. There seems to be a converter from BiaB (chords only) to iRealPro.
