Bo Chords: A modest proposal (4) Chords: A modest proposal 02 Jul 97

I have seen a lot of music sites that seem to fall into two categories: they have chords but no words or vice versa. I realise many of the people who want chords have a good idea of the words and some people dont trust found chords with their lyrics but why dont people combine them more?

I know that most ansi chord notation is cumbersome but speaking as someone trying to learn guitar it would be great if there were chords with more songs.

I guess I'm speaking more to those people who post chords, many of the lyric posters dont play an instrument to know chords, please trust yourself to post chords you are happy with along with all the words. That way if there is a chord change later in the song you dont miss it and it is much easier to collect these songs (IMHO).

If you dont trust a set of chords people can always delete them from their download or just use them as a starting point for discoverring how the music sounds to them.
