Thread: Song version, transcriptor name and modification request system for charts

    Default Song version, transcriptor name and modification request system for charts

    Hi to all !

    First of all, thanks a lot for the creator of this great tool of iRealPro ! I use it a lot and find it wonderful.

    I have some suggestions concerning the evolution of the tool : it is very common that some charts have chords that are not quite right or don't sound good, at least with the melody. It happened to me yesterday at a jam, for several tunes.
    Sometimes it is because the chords are based on a specific version, or sometimes because it has been copied from another source, or maybe it is mistakes.

    The thing is, today it's not possible to have these informations : what's the version the chords are based on ? Who was the transcriptor of the chords ?

    I would suggest to make it possible to add these informstions in the chart, and in a wonderful world, I would imagine there would be a way to easily request modifications of the chart (and then some groupe of dedicated musicians would check it and modify the chart maybe). This is what has been done in the Baudoin book charts, and that's very useful.

    P.S : If it is possible to change the defaut chord name "Δ7" by "Δ" that would be great. When reading fast, the "7" is confusing because it suggests a m7.

    Hi Martin
    In our posting guidelines, members are encouraged to provide source info on charts they post.
    guidelines for posting charts:

    You may include your name as transcriber/arranger on the chart using text, and/or append your initials to the title.

    "Δ7" vs. "Δ"
    In iRp, they are the same. Both are allowed. Some users prefer one, some users prefer the other.
    There are those who feel that the 7 is redundant. "Δ9 is fine...
    Others viewing small phone screens worry about confusing Δ with o.
