The Guide to Successful Searching and Ordering
Some Important Search Tips
All databases are unique (and a little quirky). Here are some really useful search tips for ours:
1. Choose from the pull-down search menu carefully. The search menu tells us where in the database to look for your request. If you want to find a favorite song title but search under "Artist" you are sure to miss out on many, if not all, of the choices we offer.
If you're confused about the best search option for you, try a few different ones.
2. If searching for a song, check that you've chosen "Song Name" from the search pull-down menu. Then, TYPE ONLY THE EXACT NAME OF THE SONG. Do not include any extra words (e.g., do not include lyrics, the artist, the instrument, etc.).
3. Try using just the last names of artists/composers. Publishers vary widely in the way they reference famous artists and composers. Limit yourself to last names and you're sure to find worthwhile titles that you might otherwise miss.
4. Try fewer words at first go. For example, search "Beatles" rather then "Beatles tab".
Sort the Results to Suit Your Needs
We automatically sort search results in best-selling order. You can also sort your results by newest release, by price or in alphabetical order. Click on the sort links (at the top of the search results) to change the sort order. Bravo!
Narrow Down Your Choices
If your first search yields too many titles to choose from, use the "Narrow these results" box at the top or bottom of the page to add one or two additional search words. This will narrow down your results.
For instance, say you first search "Beatles." You can narrow our 400+ Beatles titles by adding "flute" to the "Narrow these results" box. You'll then find we have four great Beatles titles for flute.
