If you need blank manuscript paper (sheet music), save your money and look no further! Vision Music offers over a dozen popular formats as letter-size templates. Just click on a style and print all you want (paper not included). Hint: clicking on the blue guitarist in the upper left-hand corner of any of the following pages will return you to the main manuscript page.
Style #1: LEAD SHEET
The standard treble clef "lead sheet" is perfect for the "legitimate" music copyist ("I don't need no stinkin' tab!").
Style #2: LEAD/TAB
This popular combination of "lead sheet plus tablature" is considered standard among guitar arrangers/composers.
Style #3: TABLATURE
Dedicated guitar "TAB" (tablature) for the player with little or no interest in reading/writing standard notation.
Style #4: CHORD GRIDS
Still a highly popular, visually "graphic" means for guitarists to record their chord progressions and ideas.
Style #5: LEAD/GRIDS
For decades many chord-melody guitarists have favored a combination of notation with visual chord grids.
Style #6: STANDARD PIANO
Yes, Vision Music caters to guitarists & bassists, but we couldn't leave our keyboard colleagues out of the fun!
