  • 100% note-for-note basslines transcriptions. The bass scores notation generally means single-line in F clef in standard notation.
  • Chord Symbols. The defining, characteristic component of a lead sheet is its chord symbols. A chord symbol defines the current harmonic region, as a key signature, and it stays in effect until the chord changes. Chord symbols are set above the staff, centred over the beat where the new harmonic region begins.
  • Tempo, Styles, Clef, Key and Time Signatures. These provide a basic orientation for the musician.
  • Separate instrumental parts. To make it easier for the less experienced to read, tabs have been added with the rhythmic subdivision called Powertabs, which indicate the positions of the notes on the bass neck and their rhythmic subdivision.
