We’re often asked to provide sample charts for you to check out. There are several reasons for why we don’t like doing so. For one, we believe that a musician that has to ask for sample charts is likely not comfortable with all types of music notation, which is a problem.
Also, a sample chart or two, are not going to be indicative of all the types of charts you’re going to encounter on a ship and could thus be misleading.
All players must be able to read note-by-note music notation and rhythm section players must also be able to read chord charts.
The best advice I can give is to make sure you can read just about anything your could be asked to play, regardless of the music notation. There is not good substitute for experience when it comes to reading. It’ll make you more competent and confident.
Take the extra time to prepare yourself properly and you won’t need to see sample charts.
