lead sheet chord placements.
I wish that there were an option to place a chord on top of a bass that is not the root.
In the attached example you can see space savings. If I wanted to add a chord on the second beat in measure one, I would have to stretch the measure considerably in order to fit it. When a forward slash is introduced during notation of the chord and bass, there should be a pop up window asking if the writer wants to add the bass note on the bottom of the chord or follow a forward slash. Over a 3 - 4 page lead sheet, that could quite a space savings, maybe even an entire sheet. It all depends on the density of chords per measure. Most, if not all other available commercial programs already have that feature available.
Over the past 50+ years of playing I have never had a bass or guitar player, or any other musician complain about having to turn fewer pages. Your thoughts and comments are welcome.
