Overall this is a fairly good program. For what it costs. If I were wishing for additional functionality, well ... I have a list: 1st, make that "included" database with hundreds of (mostly) handwritten tunes with minimal information OPTIONAL. 2nd, failing that, make it easy to REMOVE that extensive database except one at a time, which takes essentially forever. 3rd, write an extensive help file, even if only on-line. 4th, maybe even publish the source code so that someone else could help.

Thanks for the review, I really appreciate the feedback! I'll think about making the default charts optional, but it is quite easy to delete these completely. There are two preloaded lists (Fakebook and Popbook), select them in the list editor and then select "Delete playlist and songs". For a help file, there is now a draft on fakebookpro.com!
