Chord Sheet types
The Chord Sheet
A simple an economical product
The chord sheet is the simplest product. It usually fits on one or two pages. It allows the musicians to write their respective indications, since the measures remain empty (there are no notes on the staff).
Ideal for music groups
It is usually necessary to listen to the recording while taking notes on the sheet music to ensure a good interpretation of the piece. The main elements present on chord sheets are chords and group punches.
The chord sheet with lyrics and melody
Sheet music designed to accompany singers
The chord sheet with lyrics and melody is the ideal product when a singer works with musicians. It usually fits on two or three pages. As the name suggests, it includes chords as well as vocal melody and lyrics.
Emphasis on the vocal melody
It is usually necessary to listen to the recording while taking notes on the sheet music to ensure a good interpretation of the piece. The space for note-taking is however limited, since the vocal melody occupies the measures.
