Of course you can add songs to your Chordpro music library simply by downloading them onto your Blackberry SD memory card and choosing UPDATE CHORDPRO LIBRARY.
Your new songs will instantly appear in the list and become available for playing wherever you go.
Playing a Chordpro File
Once you have selected the Chordpro song that you want to play, the song opens up and displays the lyrics and chords. You can then scroll through the chords and instantly look up any chord that you don’t know how to play in the 30,000+ chord library.
You can also enable auto scrolling of the song so that the song display will advance at the speed you have chosen so you can play it hands free.

By moving the Blackberry pointer to the right, more ways to play the chord are displayed. The order in which they are
displayed begins at fret 1 and moves up the neck as you move through the chords. This makes it easy to find the most appropriate version of the chord for the song you are playing.
Chords can also be searched by pressing the blackberry button and entering the chord name.
