Thread: Composer information

  1. #1

    Default Composer information

    iReal Pro is all about chord chart sharing. Charts posted in the Forums including the sandbox (for whatever purpose) can be downloaded (and shared) by anyone. Charts without composer credit or having incorrect information can take on a life of their own and be shared on and on and on and on and on and on...

    Many different songs have the same (or similar) titles. The composer name(s) can be helpful in identifying the song.
    Without the composers, songs wouldn't exist for us to share and perform. Songs can be covered by various artists.

    All of us here have Internet and (if only out of respect) when writing a chart, we should make an effort to include correct composer info. "unknown composer" isn't helpful to anyone.

    Good sources of composer info:

    https://secondhandsongs.com

    https://www.discogs.com/search/

    https://www.wikipedia.org

    https://www.allmusic.com
    "by" means performed by..
    Look for "composed by..."

    If a song is "traditional" (so old that no attribution can be found) then use that.

    When sharing original songs of your own composition include your name as composer. Also, if you can include a link to either an audio file or YouTube, your original chord chart will have some context.

    Let's make the forums a resource for the future. We're all in this together
