Looking forward to seeing old friends and new at our upcoming Meetups.
Just forwarding this new setup Doug's got rigged for viewing lyrics at his house via his techno-setup while everybody plays, f.y.i:
From Doug: I now have the ability to display large print, scrolling lyrics and chords for all to see on my 37" TV using songbook software and chordpro format files. This is the same technology that Fred uses on his IPad. If you're interested there is a link below to learn more. Once you have a chordpro song text file the way you want it you can email it as an attachment to [address removed]. I will have it ready for display at the next meetup if you send it to me no later than 6pm the previous day. The software can transpose keys instantly so you don't have to worry about that. I will make all the files that are submitted available for anyone who wants them. this site explains the chordpro format http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/ChordPro-Format this program is free and will display the files the way they will appear. http://tenbyten.com/software/songsgen/index.php You can find thousands of songs on-line already entered in chordpro format by doing a google search as follows; the song title in quotes, a space, ext:chopro. For example "Blackbird" ext:chopro You will still need to check them for accuracy. Thanks, and if you have any questions about his setup, please email Doug directly from his member page here on our group site. Cheers, and hope to see you soon!
