Try OpenOffice - it's a free app that you can download and is compatible with MS docs and spreadsheets etc. Download from here (http://www.openoffice.org/). I'm told it's pretty good - I've never used it myself, but it's worth a try, no??

What other formats would be good then - just like a rich text format or something?

The problem might be that then you don't get the formatting - which is kinda the point!

Just leave it as is Justin. I'll install Open Office when i want to use the file.

Thank you and see you tomorrow @UStream  8)

How do you feel about writing our songbook by hand? I tend to remember better when I write rather than type.

Hi
Been looking for TR301 and TR302 in both TR section and lesson index section. Have they been removed?
Cheers

Hi all

Having return to this brilliant site from a fair amount of time away, this page doesn't seem to be working. It was a really useful tool whihc I would be sorry to lose!!!

Is this another copyright thing?  :o

Cheers

Thanks close

Just a thought but I have a number of song sheets in this format from when I was first starting out up to now where I'm a bit better (not much though). Some I've written myself, some I got from other places where they may have been available a couple* of years ago.

I would not want anything approaching copyright issues to be anywhere near this site, but is there somewhere where I could upload them in this format for others to "use as a teaching aid"?

Possibly a big no no but just thinking outloud  :-X

*Edit: ouch.....4 years ago - time flys!!!!
