A karaoke track is a recording that features musical backing and backing vocals designed to be played as someone sings along. Many bars and clubs feature regular karaoke nights. Professional singers often use karaoke tracks to perform at weddings and other events. Karaoke enthusiasts get so involved in karaoke that they build large collections of discs and need a way to manage their material. If you have a large karaoke catalogue and want to easily manage your material, you can create a karaoke songbook that will let you find the songs in your collection when you need them.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Plan your layout and use software to create your karaoke songbook. You can purchase software or use something on your computer. OpenOffice is free and has a spreadsheet program ideal for creating karaoke songbooks for organising your material. There are also numerous programs you can purchase specifically for organising your catalogue. Whichever program you select, the key is to create a layout that offers you the most flexibility.

  2. 2

    Create five columns. Name the five column headings as: DISC #, DISC TITLE, ARTIST, GENRE, SONG TITLES. Add more columns if you want to add additional headings such as TYPE (duet, ballad, etc).

  3. 3

    Type the number of the disc in the DISC # column and type the title of the disc under the DISC TITLE heading. For artist, either type an artist's name or type "various" if there are several artists. Write the type of music on the disc under the GENRE heading. Use the word "mixed" if it is varied. Include the title of each song on every disc under the "SONG TITLE" heading and alphabetise the songs to make locating them easy.

  4. 4

    Set the font size of your text to 18 and select a legible font such as Times New Roman. This will make your songbook easier for you or someone else to read if you're in a club with low lighting.
