Why Lead Sheets?
Having fleshed out lead sheets for your catalogue of original music can benefit you as an artist in a myriad of ways:
-Copywriting: When you submit your music for copywriting purposes, your original music will be significantly more protected if you submit a lead sheet with your recording
-Collaboration: Almost all professional musicians know how to read and interpret a lead sheet. With charts, you will be able to add almost any instrument to your live show or studio session, and have the player create excellent and appropriate parts for themselves on the spot
-Reference: If you keep a lead sheet catalogue for your music, you will never have to worry about forgetting how to play old material that you haven't played in a while. Just break the chart out, and re-learning will be a breeze.
