“Turn the Page” Tips for the Pro Guitarist pt 4

Often when making charts or cheat sheets for gigs it’s not uncommon to write notes for multiple songs on the same page or write another song on the back of the page. This isn’t the best of ideas. Set lists change and it’s much easier to have each song independent of each other. That means no writing on the back of the page unless it’s scribble art.  This way you don’t have to flip the page over during a song and you can pre-arrange or re-arrange before the show.
Having to flip though pages to find the next song isn’t the vibe you want to set onstage. If you must have sheets, it should be effortless to switch between them. Also finding them later should be easy. When they’re on separate pages they’re easier to file for later gigs.
Save the back of the page for notes on things like sounds you’re using for the set. I’ll often write what effects, guitars and amps I’m using as for the gig. In the event I haven’t played a particular gig in months, it’s easy to get refreshed.
