Essential Components of Septentrion Bass Booklet
- Bass parts. The music for bass is written in standard notation.
- Chord Symbols. The defining, characteristic component of sheet music 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.
- Roadmaps, Repeats, and Arrangement Directions. To keep the scores concise, multiple passes through a section are indicated with repeat signs, multiple ending systems, codas, segnos, and the like. Rehearsal letters or names for different sections (Intro, Verse, Chorus, etc.), are further clarified with double bar lines. Text indications such as “4X” or “Vamp Out” shed light on the form or arrangement.
- Slash Notation. Time slashes (////) with chord symbols written above indicate solo sections. Charts exclusively for rhythm section players might feature slash notation throughout with no written melody.
- Ensemble Notation. Critical instrumental hooks, ensemble rhythmic concepts (stop time, or kicks), and repeated licks (often for the bass) might appear in notation in temporary second staff.
