Difference between Piano, Vocal & Guitar and Piano, Vocal & Guitar (Right-Hand Melody) arrangements

Piano, Vocal & Guitar (Right-Hand Melody) is ideal for the pianist/keyboardist who wants to play their favourite songs on their chosen instrument. The vocal melody is incorporated into the right-hand of the piano part, so you don’t need to sing in order to play the whole song including the vocal melody:

Piano, Vocal & Guitar is ideal for pianist-singers, or groups that include a pianist and a singer. The vocal melody exists only in the vocal line and the piano is designed to accompany the singer. In the instance of a piano-based song such as ‘Best Thing I Never Had’, the piano stays relatively true to the piano part in the original recording. In less piano-centric songs, the piano part provides a condensed version of what is going on in the band.
