To create a new song, tap on the “Create Song” button at the bottom of the screen. Enter the new song title, and the number of measures you would like. Make sure the new song title is not blank, and that there is not already a song by the same name.

Your new song will show up on the screen after you tap the “Enter” button. At first, your song is given default chord changes that you must edit. To edit each chord, just double-tap on it, and enter the new chord information in the Chord Selector.
