    Default How To Search For Or Request A Song Chart

    First, always try the search function: (title or just keywords)
    Also try composer or band name.
    Magnifying glass icon at the top-right of this page.

    Sometimes composer names aren't accurately included on charts. (They should be)

    Searching for keywords in titles or band names can yield results.

    Google and Wikipedia can help you in choosing terms to use in the Forums-search.

    Also check spelling...

    If your search is unable to locate an already posted chart, then...

    Don't use a visitor message or PM to ask for charts, they only go to one person and aren't searchable by volunteer chart posters.

    You may post your song requests ONE AT A TIME...in the most appropriate SONG forum.

    Be sure to TITLE your request: "Song Title - composer name (Request)”
    "(Request)" in the thread title is important. That's how helpful members will find your post.


    Always include the composer name(s) since there are many songs with the same or similar titles.

    Use google to learn composer names.

    Include additional information: Band name, as performed by, from "album" etc in the body of your post.

    Since charts are provided by volunteer members*, it can be really helpful to include a YouTube link to the song/version you seek.

    Members can search the forums for "request" to easily locate pending requests.

    When a chart is posted in response to your request, "(Request)” will be removed from the thread title and the thread will become the discussion thread for that song. Additional versions, corrections, reharms etc. can be added to that thread.

    Default Requesting charts

    In case the previous post wasn't clear.....

    Search before you post

    Many folks ask for charts without first doing a search.
    If you access the forums through your browser, there is indeed a magnifying glass icon in the upper-right corner of the forums' page, if you get to the forum from within your app it's at the top Right of the forums sidebar.

    Ok, you've searched and your tune isn't posted (yet).

    Correctly format your post

    Unless you format your request correctly, you are wasting your time.

    Just posting the song title isn't enough. The only people who will see your post are also looking for that tune.

    THEY DON'T HAVE IT EITHER.

    Many tunes have similar titles, that's why the COMPOSER'S name is required as well.
    If you don't know who wrote the song, LOOK IT UP. Hey, you are on the Internet....
    https://www.irealb.com/forums/showth...er-information

    The word (Request) must also be in the thread title.
    That's how our helpful volunteers will find your’s and other pending chart requests.

    Be sure to use this correct thread title format:

    Song Title - Composer Name (Request)

    Include any other information in the body of your post

    If you are hoping that someone with "good" ears will take their time to write out and post a chart as a favor for you, you'll want to make it as easy for them as possible, so include a YouTube link so that they can EASILY listen to it. (...and think, that's a cool tune, I could write out a chart for it.)

    The more complete your request is and the easier you make it for folks, the more likely someone will help you.

    When someone posts a chart in response to your request, be sure to thank them.
