comment Cannot change font color to black with CreateSpace package
[...] When doing photography, one can spend a fair amount of time calibrating screen/printer/scanner... and photography software will be able to switch from one profile to another to show the user exactly how it will show and the different output devices. Most professional printing company will give you their own printer profile (has the ones provided by the CreateSpace package). Now how to get Adobe Reader to do the translation properly... I have no idea. I guess it will use the system profile and hand the translation to the OS requiring the user to calibrate the system properly.

comment Cannot change font color to black with CreateSpace package
Your sample shows black here and the colour picker on my environment gets RGB(0,0,0). I definitely thing your environment doesn't handle the colourspace properly. As a matter of fact I have tried it on a Mac and get what you described when using Adobe Reader but using Preview I get RGB(0,0,0). This is definitely a colourspace interpretation issue. Your sceen has its own response, the system will try and match this by translating the colourspace of the document (usually RGB) to what the screen can handle. For printing it is the same: the printer will have its own response. [...]

To me that would be the idea. However I have never used their service and haven't got a calibrated set up to test. But you can do some weird things with colourspace. how do the pdf examples given you the github link you provided get displayed on your screen? I have also compiled your MWE and on my screen it look black on adobe reader under linux. could you link to the your sample pdf?

The problem here is that you are looking at a document with its own colourspace which is specifically designed to print correctly on the CreateSpace service. I suspect you will only see the colours correctly if your setup is properly calibrated and your viewer can handle colourspaces properly.

comment Issue with itemize inside a tabular
not only you are missing \end{itemize} but you are also missing \end{tabular}. these environments follow the syntax \begin{env}...\end{env} NOT \begin{env}{...} as you seem to be using (at least in your MWE.

comment Updated the songs package and now my songs are stretched out
Yeah I know, but I did say it was a hack. There might be another way of doing the same thing maybe by playing with penalties or extracting the code that stops the balancing from the \chordson function, but I am not comfortable enough with that sort of things. I don't know if the solution I gave has other effects which you may not want though.

oh sorry deleted my message when I realised that you indeed had, in the hope you wouldn't have had time to see it, but I was too late.

It really looks like your installation is incomplete. The otf version of the Latin Modern fonts should be located in /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype/public/lm/. If it isn't there I would suggest you install the lm package from the TeX Live Utility. As a general rule I would advise you to install the complete TeXLive distribution.

comment Hyperref mouse over action on links
This is not entirely correct. There seem to be several ways of achieving this within the pdf specs. Quickly googling around shows methods using pdf forms or javascript. However these methods may only work in Adobe reader. The huge caveat here is whether it is possible to do these things within LaTex. And that I don't know.
