    I did post it (see a couple of messages back). That sheet for Clapton's Autumn Leaves seems busy and crowded; not exactly pretty.

    rKeeling75,

    Hi. I looked over your chart. The chords are excellent, but the sections are divided incorrectly and the labeling of them is confusing.

    There is no Verse in this arrangement. And I think it's more helpful to label the sections "VOCALS" and "INSTRUMENTALS," rather than use the general term "Interlude."

    I hope you don't mind, but in the spirit of constructive criticism I'm posting a corrected version. I hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Jer,
    Excellent, clear chart. Easy to follow and understand.

    Our goal for forum discussion is not just to arrive at (and only post) a "correct" chart, but rather to show the process and help current and future users get better at it.

    My goals for iRp chart lay-out:
    1. make it as easy as possible for the musician to sight-read it (ready, set, go)
    2. make it work properly in the player
    3. make it look nice (square and even)
    4. make it fit on one page

    Intentionally using "unrecognized" chords to "force" the player to default to bass-only suggests another interesting and musical tool to use with the player in addition to |chord NC | And | chord /x /x /x | or | NC | /x /x /x /x |
    (Stop-time and faux bass-line)

    This may provide a new way to add some "PeterGunn-like" phrasing in charts.

    When the Error message displays, just hit OK.

    Gunn-like - Example

    Like I said....inventive.

    Keep in mind that using tricks that aren’t hard-coded as player features may not always give expected results.

    IvoRocha,

    Hi. Your chart is very clean and correct, but it has no real ending.

    The simplest ending would be on the first beat of the last bar. But that bar contains the turnaround chord of G7b9 rather than the tonic of Gm.

    I suggest adding a coda sign on the next to last bar, adding a coda bar with Gm, and marking it with the END command.

    Cheers,
    Jer
