I do a lot of lead sheets for wedding bands, and here’s a feature that would be very useful to me.
I’d like to be able to do a one-two page song, where I have the first verse under the notes and the lyrics for any additional verses at the end of the song, instead of on additional lyric lines. I’d like to be able to attach chord symbols to those lyrics too, so that the reader could play the chart, and then continue to comp the vocals to the next verse off of them.
As a singing keyboard player, this would be super helpful in cases where I have some familiarity with the song, but don’t know it well (and the band might not know it at all), and would keep the charts more manageable for wedding band work, as compared to writing out multiple verses (or voices) with slight melodic variations to match the additional lyrics.
Basically, I’d like to have the ability to have a hybrid lead sheet and lyric chord chart as a single one or two-page document that would transpose as needed.
Doable in Dorico? Is this something others would find helpful too? Thanks!
