Been playing for years, but every new cover band I join has a different set list, and my core memory is full; I need some electronic assistance on stage. For every new song I prepare a lyric sheet in Microsoft Word. I show the lead singer's lyrics in normal type, my answerback parts in bold, my ooh-ooh-ooh or ah-ah-ah parts in bold italic, and my harmony parts in bold underlined. I show instrumental intros, interludes, and solos in measures, like "|C |F |C G |C / |". I include the chords over the first verse and the first chorus; for subsequent choruses and interludes I just note "(chorus)" and "(interlude)". I'll occasionally put in italicized notes, like "quietly" or "guitar only". I can often fit the entire structure, lyrics, and chords on a single sheet, and never need more than two pages. I also buy the original album version of the song from Amazon if I don't already have it on CD, and outline that complete structure on the sheet. I ultimately burn the MP3s onto CDs and I print the sheets out, and play them along with the CDs to learn the songs. I have a pretty big backlog of these sheets, some transposed for different singers, and I use Audacity to make a pitch-shifted MP3 version to match. But dang, I play with so many different people, with so many different set lists, to memorize the lyrics for all my backup vocal parts; it uses all my memory cells just to memorize the structure and chord sequence and the bass part (or just the bass feel). I think if I get a Windows-powered tablet with MS Word loaded, I can get a clip to mount it on my mic stand so I could have some help at gigs which will be a lot less obtrusive than the loose-leaf notebook on a music stand which now I use at home and at band practice until I learn the song. It would need to have a touch screen, so I could reach out and scroll down while left-hand tapping, or a remote foot-operated pointing device. I could have the playlist for each band on a separate memory stick, pull up the folder holding my Word files, listed alphabetically, and just reach out and tap to display whichever tune the leader calls. So, my questions: what am I not considering? Is there a tablet that others have used and recommend? Is there a good foot-operating pointing device for scrolling? Is there a dedicated device that would do a better job than a tablet computer (in the same ~$400 price range)? Or is there another forum where I should post these questions? I'd love to hear from anyone who has done something like this before.
