Detroit session sheet music/notation

The wonderful David J. Van De Pitte was responsible for the arrangments of my Detroit session songs. He took my vocal/instrumental ideas from the demos I sent over prior to the session and created hand written full notation. No computers involved! After the recording session I was presented with sheet music, which I will treasure. Above is just one page of 'Suddenly there's you' and you can cleary see how intricate it is. Going back further in time, I created the chords and melody in Logic Audio, my sequencer package. Once the demo is ready to record, I record the composite output of wav/midi instruments (as I also do a little live guitar etc) into a stereo lef and right instrumental.
