For any musician interested in playing or writing songs, being able to create a lead sheet is a very good idea. It's very smart to be able to go "backwards and forwards" in music, because it makes the whole process easier, more efficient, and more enjoyable.
I'm glad you're looking for information on how to create a lead sheet, because it puts you in a category of musicians that care about their craft. Just by reading this page, you indicate that you care about competence in musicianship, that you value skill, and that you value effective communication...because that's what a lead sheet is...it's effective communication among musicians about a song.
Good for you!
