My workflow:

- on the pc version I add songs we are going to play. Meaning copy/paste lyrics from the interweb.
- I usually copy the chords as well just for a starting point.
- then there is a little bit of work of putting chords in placeholders so that Songbook can work with them. This makes it easy to change key on the fly and whatnot. Takes about 5 minutes per song.
- I then play the song and make my own corrections to the chords, making notes on breaks and stuff like that.
- Everytime I save the bandmembers just have to update the songlist from back home. Then every new song and correction is in their songbook, and we are all practicing from that same master.
- During band practice we try different keys to make sure the singer is in a comfortable range of her voice. Very easy in Songbook to change keys throughout the song. I always bring my ipad.
- changes during the band session is not populated to the band because I'm a cheap bastard and do not have an ipad with a sim card.
- I note the changes in Songbook during practice and populate when I get back home.

We are not using the link via bluetooth functionality during band practice.
Some members are always low on battery and bluetooth drinks a lot of juice
Thanks for the explanation. Very informative!

You're welcome.

I guess most of these apps are quite similar. You decide based on OS availability, price and recommendations. But basically, they all do pretty much the same.

@Joerfe
do you have the latest update.

When you copy a song with chords you can change it to chordpro formate with one click of a buttom.
The one I'm using is for andriod on my tablet so it may be a little different than the pc version.
I search the web right from Songbook and click copy in Songbook. Hit the drop down in set up(the three little dots)
abd click on chordpro. It automatically changes the whole song and you can edit, change key etc.

@ Wheelin Rev. That the the one I'm using but the android version.

program. It's easy when you know the code.

Thanks Stitch.
I kind of forgot that feature which was a major feature for me when deciding on which app to get for this.
Just tried it out and it works great.
