I'm new here, so please don't think me stupid. I've been playing piano for 53 years and organ in church for 46 years. I am a classically trained musician who can sight read anything and play anything by ear as well. I am music director for three churches, having just added a Charismatic MCC church. Here is my question. When I am looking for lead sheets or chord charts for Gospel music they seem to not exist in the format I'm used to. I see these chords you folks are using and I can't make head nor tail out of them. Is there some secret to reading them quickly or is everything one note at a time and memorized?
Would anyone else like real lead sheets?
Confused and wanting help,
