    Default Templates

    Moderator edit:
    Update 2016
    The editor in the app includes these templates Edit>New Song>
    Blank
    32 Measures AABA
    32 Measures AABC
    48 Measures (4 bars in each system top to bottom)
    96 Measures (8 bars in each system top to bottom)

    For new songs, I usually start with the 48 bar template adding time-sig, repeat brackets, rehearsal marks double bar lines, endings etc. and chords as I go.
    Don't forget title, composer(!) and style info.
    When I'm finished, I highlight and cut any unused measures at the bottom.

    Templates

    Here some templates for typical layouts I have been using with correct barlines and form.

    They can be easily modified.
    Mac editor: you can use key commands to insert beats (cmd-\) or delete beats (cmd-delete) and create an opening (left) single barline (cmd-B) or closing (cmd-Shift-B). For repeats of a section (like ABA) use the copy/paste commands for the second A (if is is a little different, be sure to make the edits!)

    iReal Book: tap the Symbols tab then select either Insert beat or Delete beat.

    All start with the word "Temp" so you can find them grouped together in iReal book index. Choose Edit a copy of song to retain the template for further use.


    12 bar blues form: (no rehearsal symbol used)
    Temp.Blues by Unknown Composer


    A section with 1st and 2nd time bars, B section then A section, complete with final barline:
    Temp.A12 B A by Unknown Composer

    as above with intro:
    Temp.In A12 B A by Unknown Composer


    A, B, A, C form:
    Temp.A B A C by Unknown Composer

    as above with intro:
    Temp.In A B A C by Unknown Composer


    A, B, C, A form:
    Temp.A B C A by Unknown Composer

    as above with intro:
    Temp.In A B C A by Unknown Composer


    A section 16 bars; B section 8 bars with double barline at end (not final):
    Temp.A16 B8 by Unknown Composer

    as above with intro:
    Temp.In A16 B8 by Unknown Composer
