Lead Sheet Sheet Music / Score - Download and Print
Lead sheets are an abbreviated form of musical notation that specifies all of the essential components of a tune - mostly popular songs. The elements are the melody, lyrics and harmony.
As important as what the lead sheet does do, it is useful to note what it doesn't - namely, it does not describe the bass line, chord voicings, voice leading or other aspects of the accompaniment. These can be specified later by an arranger or improvised by performers.
