Importing from SongSelect

For SongSelect users, Music Stand allows easy importing of lyrics and chord sheets (including ChordPro®) with a few simple steps.

Click the "+ Add Song" button from your Cue List. Music Stand will pop open an "Add Song" window where you can search SongSelect's database of lyrics and chord charts (as well as the existing songs in Your Library). Make sure SongSelect is selected and begin typing your song in the search box.

Matching results will populate in the area under the search box with the more popular listings closer to the top. Simply find the one you're looking for and click on it to import.

Note: when you're looking at the list of SongSelect results, notice the flat symbol (♭) and speech bubble icons to the right of each song. The flat symbol indicates that there are chord charts available for this song in the SongSelect library. The speech bubble indicates there are lyrics available. Some songs (like "Amazing Grace" by John Newton in the example image above) may only have lyrics on file at SongSelect. 

For these songs, you will only be able to import and see the lyrics on Music Stand. If a song has both lyrics and chords on file, Music Stand will import both, and provide the option to toggle between viewing as:

  • Chord Chart (1 Column)
  • Chord Chart (2 Columns)
  • Lyrics Only

In the example below, note the difference in the dropdown options for "Amazing Grace," which only has lyrics available through SongSelect, and "It Is Well With My Soul," which has both lyrics and chords available through SongSelect.
