Thank you Knotty, Custard and Mark. I do love that tune and it was fun doing.
Mark, I'm sorry but that is me playing my fifteen year-old digital
I know I need a new piano, but that thing refuses to die. Yamahas are the Volvos of electronic pianos. This morning I tried recording with a mic (rather than direct to the computer) and it was much worse - it picked up the key noise which is very bad.
could you talk about how you put it together?
Once I realized that I wasn't able to memorize music any more I came up with a cheat sheet method that would let me learn and play tunes in different keys. (Playing the same tune in different keys helps me learn the tune & also helps me learn voicing). I made up this ALBIL sheet several months ago. I do it in Excel. The pdf fits nicely on an ipad. First I take the changes from a real book source and then add basic reharm using tri-tone subs and secondary dominants. My ear is very conservative. My jazz ear is stuck in the fifties (the golden age of jazz
) Then I wrote out the four voices using the following web site as a source. Theory
I realize my example is not very chorale-like. I'm still thinking vertically.
Here's my sheet. I use these for learning and transposing. All chords are seventh chords. The little numbers are voicing tips.
Sorry for the lengthy post.
