This music is from a book entitled: “Composing, Arranging andImprovising Using Lead Sheets and Chord Charts”.

It shows the development of an original song beginning witha simple three-chord lead sheet and developing into an original piece of music.This song starts out with a lead sheet version of "The Erie Canal".

The development occurs in the following manner.

1. The piece is shown as a lead sheet with melody andprimary chords only.

2. The piece is shown with added chord alterations or chordsubstitutions.

3. The piece is further developed melodically, rhythmicallyand harmonically to become its own song.
