1.) Individual Songs (for Vocalists) - These charts have been transposed to all 12 keys so that vocalists can choose the key that fits your range the best. These PDFs have been individually checked to remove any enharmonic problems, double flats, etc. Your accompanists will be grateful to have these accurate and pristine lead sheets to work from!

IMPORTANT NOTE TO VOCALISTS: When you go to download any given song, the range of the melody is given to the right of the “Add to Cart” button (see below). To help find the correct key for you, please use the melody guide in different keys until it matches the best range for your voice. Thanks!


2.) The Entire Book (for Instrumentalists) - The complete C, Bb and Eb versions of “The Digital Standards Songbook” have the songs in the same keys as they are in the Sher Music Co. books they originally came from. This will allow musicians using these digital charts to play music with people who are using the printed versions of our “Standards Real Book” and “The New Real Books, Vol. 1-3.”
