into a iRealb chart.

2. Create a regular MuseScore chart
3. Save your MuseScore chart as a MusicXML file.
4. Go to Plugins -> iRealb
5. Select the XML file of you chart.
6. 'Select All' -> Copy the URI from the Text Dialog window.
(NOTE: the text dialog window is editable, which is handy for
quick edits/changes once you get familiar with the
iRealb syntax.)
7. Open a Web Browser and navigate to

'IMPORT - Paste a song/playlist code here:'
9. Click 'Import'

(there will probably be many ;)
12. Export your song (Email, etc) from the iRealb Web Editor

NOTE: It does not convert every (any ;) chart accurately.
It does often get many of the chords and form correct.

your chart via the Web Editor.
