Default Songbook files

Anyone willing to share their Songbook app files (lyric/chords)? I am finding that internet search results in hit-or-miss list of songs - some with incorrect chords, etc.

I would be happy to send some beer money for your troubles.

Thanks.

P.S. If this is illegal or not allowed I apologize in advance.

I'd show you mine if you show me yours, lol.

But first - what's your genre/style?

So, a question. Is there an easy way to slice up the PDF book into individual songs that Songbook app can accept? I can't figure out how to do it even manually copying and pasting without significant formatting effort. Did PDF to XPS to TXT and the formatting was way off.

Oh, and I don't have a particular genre. The songs in the referenced PDF book look great if I can figure out how to get them in to Songbook app.

Thanks in advance.

If you have Adobe PDF you can extract individual pages under the "Document" tab. I have also printed a single page, but selected Adobe PDF as the target instead of my laser printer.

You can also find free PDF readers from Open Office and others. I use Good Reader as a PDF reader on the iPad and iPhone. Can't help with Songbook specifically.

I have 400 plus : 60-s -70's , single sheet corrected(for the most part) lyric chord sheets I initially got from Ultimate Guitar, Chordie etc.. 15 years ago. In Word Document.

Print them on card stock paper and they sit on the stand. Font annotated to fit the whole single page. Some songs like No Milk Today are two pages. Good for printing multiple copies for sing along jams.
