I just made this chart in Word using that 'chord charts 2.0' method that I mentioned earlier.
Took about 20 minutes.
It's Linclon Brewster's arrangement of "You Are Good".

Oh, the Ludite pain is making me hurt. I enter my chord sheets on Songsheet Generator and keep them with me all the time on my Android phone and tablet. They are synced through the cloud with dropbox, so edits I make on the Android device or my PC are automatically transferred to all my devices. It's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Regards,
David

On an Android Phone/Tablet, I use [shhh] it's a secret.

Actually found that chord sheet generator and I love it. The problem for me with using MS word and pen and paper was really just this. (and I admit this wasn't something I put in the original post) I wasn't able to transpose. So if I made a change to one copy I had to make that change to all of them. So the songsheet generator was great once I got the hang of it. I should have posted back on the forum. (there's too many open ended threads on the forum). So yes I have adopted songsheet generator. I like the options. There are a couple features I'd like to see but the price is right. (FREE) but I could see me donating soon because the program is very good. One feature I'd like is to send it all to PDF format. It's not that big of a deal thought. Also, I downloaded bullzip so I can print the charts directly to PDF. To me the projector mode isn't very usable but if I needed it in a jam then I could see where it could be a benefit. It's a great program and I'ts saved me lots of time.

I hope this helps anyone else who needs the same information

One more feature I like is the importer. It takes songs from tab sites and is able to import them into the chord pro format. It's not perfect but It's a time saver in the end and that's what's important to me. I already feel like I have a great song band growing and it's really good for that.

I hope this helps

A new option...

I built an application to do this very thing. It's called Chord Chart Composer. It renders great looking chord charts, lets you print in different keys and capo positions. etc.

Google it. You'll find it.

Best,
Buzz

I use song sheet generator on the PC, but now I do most of my editing on the iPad. On the iPad, I use onsong. Completely amazing app. And, I can send out the result via email in PDF. Perfect formatting, etc. supports placing capos, transposing,e tc...

Also, I can use it directly on Sunday for display, with foot control for scrolling and paging.

Knocks me out.

I suspect our way of doing things is odd, but here goes: All of the musicians in our band (except the lead singer) are professional, and we're not fond of those lyric sheets with random chord symbols. (There's no sense of groove or rhythm, so you end up learning the tunes by ear.) We chart the tunes note-for-note --- I use Finale Songwriter --- then send them out to the band. (See the attached example.) The singer can't read music, so he learns the tunes by ear and bangs out cowboy chords on a capoed acoustic while using those lyric sheets. When the players need to sing, we use separate lyric sheets.
