Music Theory For Worship: How to Read a Lead Sheet (Key Signature, Rhythm, and Structure)

Ryan Egan —  October 18, 2010 — 2 Comments

I run into many musicians who are classically trained and aren’t sure how to read lead sheets. I wanted to post a series of videos that teaches you the basics of reading lead sheets as well as learning how to play the chords written on them.

Check out the video below (Email readers, you’ll need to visit I am an Offering to see the video.)

The lead sheet I used in this video is Jesus, Thank You from Sovereign Grace music and can be downloaded for free here.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog again. I actually FIRST became a believer in 1995…but, I didn’t REALLY give my heart over c-o-m-p-l-e-t-e-l-y until 2003. So, I was technically a believer when I was at SFC but I hadn’t learned enough to realize I really wasn’t. Does that make any sense?? haha
