How to save interpretations?
1.1. Notation of Chords
There are many ways to notate guitar chords and everyone has their own personal preferences, but to standardize the songbook we suggest that you only use the established notation. This will make learning easier for beginners and ensure that our system highlights chords correctly.

Place the chords exactly where the strings are struck, that is, immediately before the word, or at the beginning of the syllable that is struck, or immediately after the word. Stick to the original key. If you use a capo, include this information in the documentation.
Before sending your study or correction, use the preview function to check that everything is correct.
1.2. Chord Notation
In our songbook we use Polish chord notation used in most Polish tourist, rock and religious songbooks. Example:Chord|
in the Pier|
B-Dur / Ais-Dur|
In some cases, you can include comments in the text with additional information about the performance of the song.
Jolka, Jolka, do you remember summer from your dreams,
When you wrote: I feel so bad,
Just break away, do something with me,
Don't leave me here alone, oh no.
1.4. Repeating chords
In paper songbooks, to save paper, the chords were often written only for the first verse. In our songbook, we require repetition of chords over all verses and all chorus repetitions. Thanks to this, even on small devices such as a phone or tablet, the chords will be visible at all times.
1.5. Complete text
In the case of repeated fragments of lyrics, do not cut off the chorus like: "So come paint...", just copy and paste the entire chorus again. This also makes it easier to play with automatic scrolling. Don't write "chorus x 4", but insert its text four times.1.6. Song title
In this field, we only provide the title of the song in its original spelling, without any additional information. According to the rules of the Polish language, only the first word of the title is written with a capital letter ( more information on the PWN dictionary website ).
Where are you my friends
House of the rising sun
Dream about the Valley
Where are you....
The House of the Rising Sun
Dream About the Valley
1.7. Song performers
Each song in our database must have at least one artist assigned to it. Please remember to use only the original artist name in the original language, in the original spelling. If the main contractor is a person, we first write down his name and then his surname.
If you don't know the original artist of the song, you can also select the category the song belongs to.
Tourist songs Folk
1.8. Track record
If you have information about who is the author of the text of the song, who is the author of the music, and who is the author of the translation, you should enter it in the appropriate fields of the song record.
