I'm working on an arrangement of a song and my theory knowledge is mainly as a vocalist, so I'm a bit stuck on what would be the best option for a pianist to read/play on this certain bit of music:
The transition from Db to B/Db... I'm trying to figure out if I should be spelling that chord to best reflect the key signature, or to best reflect the chord itself.
I'm leaning toward spelling it as pictured below. I know if I name the chord B it should be spelled as a B (not B Eb Gb), but with the Db key signature do the sharps make it confusing? There's already so many flats in the this key would it drive a pianist crazy, or would it make sense because of the movement of the chords? It seems silly to me to spell it as a Cb chord just to keep all the accidentals the same. Also, is it confusing having the B chord with a "Db" bass note? Obviously, there is no Db in a B chord, but taking into account the movement (or lack thereof) of the bass line I can't bring myself to write it as a C# to match the B chord scale.
I feel like these might be stupid questions, but I'm new to arranging for musicians and just need to know I'm making the most clear and sensible notation choices for a pianist to be able to sight-read-- and I know sometimes the theoretically-correct choice isn't always the easiest to understand.
