I am a single act. I play acoustic guitar and sing mainly classic rock.

I have about 500 songs done in word and mostly in 18 font, all with the chords and words, and even the arrangement. I found that my memory isn't what it used to be (been playing for a long time) so for each gig I figure out what songs I want to play for each set and place them in 4 binders (one for each set). (No, the audience don't seem to mind that I am reading from music.) I find that this is getting more and more difficult, and a lot of work, especially when requests come in. Does anyone know of a sofware that I could take each word document and place it in something similar to a powerpoint presentation. This way I could click on the right arrow when I finish one song and go to the next right on my laptop. I also want to be able to stop in the middle if I have to and retrieve a requested song and then go back to the "slideshow." I'm hoping there is something out there that I could use the word documents and not have to convert them to .jpg. Any suggestions are appreciated!

Hi there - are you wanting to use a laptop live? I think the easiest way of doing this would be to use something like an iPad or other tablet - There are many apps that can be used where you can quickly select through documents and swipe pages like a book ... also it's more compact and easy to take around to shows...

Is this sheet music that you are using?
