This is the standard charting style that most Nashville session and sit-in


musicians use to read songs.  It tells you the key of the song, what the


chords and chord inversions are, how they fall in the measure structure of


the song, and other rhythmic differances, if there are any.  It would behoove


anyone that is serious about being a musician, especially in Nashville or


Branson, to learn to read these kinds of charts!

Note...  the little ">" figure after the second line of the last chorus is


my own little notation for "Bucket-a-fish"...  it's a common rhythmic figure


in old country and western swing when passing from the 5 chord to the 1 chord


or the 1 chord to the 4 chord, at the end of a phrase.  It is called a



"Bucket-a-fish" because of the rhythm of it...  it is a triplet ("Buck-et-a")


and a quarter note ("fish"), followed by the common quarter-note walkup to


the next chord.  It is usually played only by the bass and drums, though


sometimes other members of the band will play it to make the lick more


pronounced.  In the key of A, passing from the 5 chord to the 1 chord, the


lick would look like this:





|   |   |   |   |   |   |


|___|___|   |   |   |   |


    [3]                                 


Where the E goes down to C#, down to B, down to the next E (the octave below


the first E), and then walks up the quarter notes back to the A (1) chord.





Not only a musician, but a computer geek as well...  check out my site on my
