I use my iPad for playing and am about 1 1/2 years into plectrum lessons. On my iPad, I use iReal Pro for the chords, and Anytune+ or Transcribe+ to listen to the music, change the key or speed. I am looking for an App that will pull these things together. Tabs HD is good for Lyrics and Chords, but you can't control the page easily. And, you can't easily customize the chords if they are not "accurate." Is there an app that merges the chords, music and words? Thanks,

Well, it's not an app, but if you can lay your hands on Don VanPalta's DVD, it contains lead sheets for 600 songs, and each lead sheet has the melody line, the lyrics, the chord changes AND fingering charts for all the chords in plectrum tuning, and which are melody chords to boot.

Since all the lead sheets are digital (.jpg's), I guess you could load them into an Ipad or similar device and view them that way.

Unfortunately, Don's website doesn't seem to be operational at the moment. Perhaps you can pick up the DVD from someone on this BB. Good Luck!
