Snippet Manager

 
 
Snippet Manager is a repository for all your ideas that you think of and don't want to forget. No matter how small, Snippet Manager can accomodate them, tell you what musical key they are in, and when you think they are ready... help you introduce them to the word "Song"!
 
Snippet Manager integrates perfectly in to the Create Tablature page and will let you insert them at any point in a song. Any Chords which are part of the Snippet are automatically inserted with them too.
 
Use Snippet Manager to put down a riff and keep it safe, or if you have a nice sounding finger picking part, put that in too in a separate snippet. You can also store song intro's, chorus lines or solo parts, then access them when you find a song you want to use them with, its that simple.
 
The screenshot below shows the Snippet Manager page and lists all your snippets and their musical key:

If you click on the 'Click to Create a New Snippet' link then you will be taken to the Create Tablature Grids Page in 'Snippet Mode' so when you save you will be saving a Snippet and it will appear in the list shown above on your Snippet Manager page.
 
The Snippet List gives you access to all the features you would expect, Edit, View, KeyFinder etc and also gives you the option to 'Make Song'. Clicking 'Make Song' will move the Snippet from the Snippet Manager in to your 'My Guitar Tabs List' and will convert it in to a full song. This features is useful if you have developed a Snippet to the point where you want to promote it to a song.
 
 

Import Snippets Directly Into Your Guitar Tablature:

 
Another way you can include your Snippets in songs is to import them in to a song you are currently working on. If you are creating a new guitar tablature piece (by clicking the 'Create Guitar Tablature' link in the main site) then you will notice a button beneath each tablature grid which says 'Add Snippet'. Clicking this button will pop up the Snippet Browser window and allow you to select a snippet to insert:
 
 
Insert Snippets Directly In To Songs
 
 
By clicking 'Insert Snippet' in the Snippet Browser window you will insert ALL the bars from the snippet in to your song at the point directly BELOW the 'Add Snippet' button that was clicked. All the Snippets chords will also be imported and appear AFTER the chords that are already present at the top of your song. In this way you can insert Snippets at any point in your song by simply clicking the required 'Add Snippet' button.
