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
