Over the past few years I’ve been called to several gigs on short notice.
These have always involved learning songs quickly and accurately as per the original. I quickly discovered though that taking the whole chart with me led to problems if the singer skipped verses (no, really, it does happen!) or even just a line or three!
This led me to trying to shorten the charts whilst keeping the main, important parts of the song as well as being able to work out any changes that may happen in the live environment quickly and as seamlessly as possible.
The PDF’s attached are two charts that I have used several times live and have allowed me navigate any issues quickly.
Feel free to use them yourself or share them…..
