What sites have people found best for finding folk songs in ChordPro format? Does anyone subscribe to any of the subscription sites?

Am I missing something in the Digital Traditions database? When I search for songs I do not see them come up in ChordPro format.

I just purchased OnSong App for iPad/iPhone. (Wow! What a great app!) I am starting to work on building up my song library in OnSong so I do not have to carry heavy songbooks around!

Though I do not currently play an instrument, as I import songs I would like to import them with guitar chords when available so I do not have to laboriously add them in when I start playing again.

What you may be missing is the fact that most traditional songs originally were unaccompanied (and many here will tell you they should remain that way), so there are no universally accepted guitar chords for them.

In addition, for songs to display in the ChordPro format, someone first has to format them that way. I can't imagine anyone taking on that task for the thousands of songs in the DigiTrad.

Michael, I am actually an a capella singer and sing traditional songs unaccompanied.

Asking about Digital Traditions was only a small part of my question. I guess I should have repeated the subject line in the content.

What I was/am asking is what sites people like who are using the ChordPro format for songs.

Thanks anyway.

It looks you could annotate any song that way in a few minutes no matter what format the chords you had for it were written in. Less effort than it takes me to select the point size that will get a song on to one sheet of A4 using Comic Sans. So is there much point in having an archive site for them?
