Fake Book Lead Sheet Part
You can quickly prepare a Fake Book Lead Sheet part. A fake book lead sheet is "short-hand" notation for the lead melody instrument of a small band, or for a keyboard instrument, where just the melody notes and chord names are displayed. The actually performed, written-out notes may be different.
You can manually prepare a Fake Book Lead Sheet part in several steps, that include using: the Select Part command; the Split Melody and Accompaniment command; merging a lyrics staff with a melody staff; and the Transcribe Chord Names command. But it is a lot easier to do this with the Prepare Fake Book Lead Sheet command in the Part menu.
To prepare a Fake Book Lead Sheet:
|1.||Choose the Prepare Fake Book Lead Sheet command in the Part menu.|
This will take you to Step 1 of 5 of the Part Preparation Wizard. The part type will be pre-selected to Fake Book Lead Sheet Part.
|2.||Follow the instructions for the wizard Steps 2 through 5 in the Part Preparation Wizard.|
