    finding vocal notes from sheet music

    Hello there
    Can anyone help me identify which set of notes are for the vocals only from the following sheet notes, the song is all the same "pear jam jeremy"

    The first one hear https://www.musicnotes.com/sheetmusi...ProductDetails
    The vocals start on the 10th bar and there are 3 set of ledger lines
    The top one is clearly separated from the bottom 2 line and is on the treble clef. but the notes are far to high for the vocals of this song.
    The bottom 2 lines are the clef and bass treble and there are several notes being played at the same time so I can not make out which instument they are for

    This one looks idental to the last one posted
    https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title...music/19431661

    Another sheet music for this song is hearhttps://www.musicaneo.com/sheetmusic/sm-110642_jeremy_pearl_jam.html#288954
    This is one set of bar lines only on the treble clef and looks identical the the first line of the other sheets I just posted. but again the notes look far to high for the vocals

    And finally hear is a youtube of the song being played and the sheet music being played at the same time.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--V51aj02D0
    But there are 2 many things being played at once to work out what is what

    I am new to reading sheet music and my teacher suggested I learn it along wit the piano so I can sing perfect pitch to the piano. so any help hear would be most appreciated

    Thanks

    Hello 123,

    if you only need the vocal part then you should probably get this version.

    The other two scores have the vocal part (upper staff) and the piano part (two lower staves).

    That migh be because the melody in that score is notated in two-line octave. The vocal in Pearl Jam's recording starts lower, in one-line octave.
    Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.

    I dont quite understand what you mean. But are you saying the vocals is exactly one octave lower then what is on the sheet?

    Well I dont understand the logic to why they have done it but if its one octave lower the the sheet music states then I guess those will be the notes I need to practace

    Thanks

    Just one other thing I wanted to ask you!

    From what I have read up about sheet music, the ♯ and b symbols (sharp and flat) go before each note.
    But on the sheet note listed below there is a load of ♯ next to the bass and treble clef of each line. Dose anyone know what this means please?

    That's known as the "Key Signature" the key of C has no sharps or flats, G has one sharp - F-, D has 2 sharps -F & C; key F has one flat - B - and so on the sharps or flats in the key signature define the notes which should always be played sharp or flat unless preceeded by a "natural" sign; for a fuller description of musical notation see this

    Before I thought they where placed there because it meant that entire line was supposed to be sharp.
    But are you saying it is just there to illustrate which notes have a sharp black key and which do not?
