Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have such and such song or know where I can get it?

Everything we have is on the site, so if it's not here, we don't have it yet. Be sure to do a search of the site. Sometimes the song title may be different than what you know it as. We suggest doing a Song title search or Artist search first and then do a lyrics search for key phrases. If you still can't find the song, please figure it out and send it in!

Return To Top... Why can't I cut-n-paste a song?

We have reformatted the songs (chord charts only) to have the ability to display in different fonts and sizes. In order to do this, we had to work some web magic to make it display properly. However, by making it look pretty for display as well as printing, the ability to highlight the song for cutting-n-pasting becomes unusable (due to the way your browser copies the text).

To eliminate this frustrating process of highlighting strangely formatted song text, we have turned off your browser's click-n-drag highlighting ability.

The Solution: The answer is an easier way for you copy the song. We have put a button right at the top of each song that looks like this:

When you click this button, the song is copied into your computer's clipboard feature (song title, chords/lyrics, and copyright information) for you. You can then paste the song in whatever application you want (Word / Powerpoint / etc).

NOTE: This copied text was pre-formatted for display in Courier New (monospaced fonts) only.  Which means, the chords will appear shifted in other fonts (such as Times New Roman, Arial, etc).  You will likely need to move the chords slightly to align them properly.

However, if we have ruined your click-n-drag highlighting fun, there is a way you can still do this.  To return to the previous display format, change your font to Courier New.  You may now highlight and hit Ctrl-C to do your song copying.  The print page will now work for this as well.

Return To Top... What do these icons mean?
- - opens the settings panel to adjust font size, color, etc
- - copies the song title and text to clipboard
- - opens the content of the song for correction or personal customization
- - displays list of links/attachments related to the song
- - opens panel to add/modify songs inclusion to your songbooks and set lists
Return To Top... Do you have bass tab for praise & worship music?

You can use the chorded version to improvise bass tab. A good way to start is to use the root notes of the chords. When you work out some good lines for any of the praise music, be sure to send it in.

Return To Top... Do you have tab for such and such instrument?

I haven't been able to find tab for anything besides guitar, bass, and horns. This includes piano and drums. You can use the tabs that are in chord version to try to write your own version. The reason there aren't any drums or piano music is that there is no way to display them in standard text file format so that they can be read on any computer.

Return To Top... The site tells me I'm logged-in BUT every time I go to get a tab I'm sent back to the "My Account/My Profile" page. How do I fix this?

First, before you log in again, please go to the site and click the LOG OFF button. Then log in again with your user id and password.

If that does not work, please make sure you don't have "cookies" turned off and that your security levels are not set so high as to prevent you from using the "cookie". We place a "cookie" on your machine when you log in so that our server knows that you have logged in. If your machine forbids us from doing that then the result is the problem you are seeing. To correct this in Internet Explorer, left click on Tools on the menu bar, double left click on Internet Options, left click on the privacy tab, near the bottom of the open box there is a section that says web sites, click the button in that section that says edit, in the next window about one-third of the way down the box there is a one line white box titled address of web site - in that box type "", left click on allow and then left click on ok. That should fix your problem without adjusting your overall privacy setting. If you are not using Internet Explorer, go to your control panel and find Internet Options and follow the above directions from there.
