I have kicked it off with my votes but I am interested to see how the rest of you vote on it. And like any other thread you can reply to give your comments on it as well as voting in the poll.

Thank you, Nigel. I believe I took the wording of Johnís other post too literally.

Although I donít consider chords to be the most important to me, without a doubt I spend much more time on chords than any other aspect of a song when I am creating a lead sheet for a song new to me. It is not uncommon for me to change chords with almost every note of the melody. I am sure that if I were a vocalist, I would spend more time on lyrics, and in that case, chords would take a back seat.

I just tried to distill the comments that were made on John's thread into a real poll. I just thought it may be fun seeing as we have the ability to do that now.
