New Chord Sheet Format - Improved layout, faster loading time!
1: Loads fasterIt is in HTML5, so it renders on the screen almost instantly. This makes for a much better mobile experience!
2: Includes more musical info (when possible)The new format will include the Tempo (beats per minute) and Time Signature of the song under the Key Indicator in the upper right section.
3: Improved Look / LayoutIn working with musicians (predominately guitar and piano players), we've updated the visual layout of sections so they are easier read. The changes include:
- Easy to read / identify "Section Label" in all caps and left aligned

Formerly known as Top SongSelect Songs, this list will show songs that are most frequently used within SongSelect. This list will change more regularly than Top CCLI Songs since it looks at weekly usage rather than a previous reporting period.
Top CCLI Songs
You can easily access the list of Top CCLI Songs to find out what other churches are using. This list goes beyond just the usage in SongSelect and allows you to see a broader perspective on what churches have reported on over a set period of time.
The Public Domain list will show all songs with a Public Domain copyright. These songs will not count against your unique song used.
We are always working hard to provide you with quality content for the songs that you use. When we add new sheet music to a song, it will cause that song to appear on the What's New list.
