More Vince Guaraldi

With the power being so sporadic, I decided to upload a partial song for you today.
It continues our “Week of Vince Guaraldi” theme.

(I was able to finish it after all…..)

Happy New Year

In honor of this year at last coming to an end, I have a new song for you. It is from the Series called “A Korean Odyssey” and is called “The Three Fates.”

It is written in B-Flat, which has 2 flats. Just like my bicycle. HA!

Here is a trailer (it doesn’t really look like a trailer to me, more like a video clip. A trailer would be on 4 wheels).

Come Sail Away

Ahoy, Matey!

Here is my take on the Styx Classic “Come Sail Away.” (For some reason the all-piano version wasn’t working yesterday.)

Synth Version
Piano Version

And here is their official video:

Here is a link to the sheet music for all of you musicians:

85 Bars and All Is Well

Music Tip #6. If you want to change a Major Chord into its Relative Minor, just add the sixth note directly above the fifth. For example, the notes for a C Major chord are CEG. If you add the next note after G, which is an A, you get CEGA, which is A Minor 7, the relative minor of C Major.

All of the accompaniment on the second clip is written with the sixth note added, giving it a real minor feel. Some of it works, some of it not so much.

What a Difference a Clef Makes

I started working on this song this morning. One line of music was in Bass Clef, but I entered it as Treble Clef.
So all of the notes are a minor or major third below where they should be.

There are two lines of music in each clip and one of them is the same in each, yet the entire song sounds completely different.

I’m not sure which one I like better. Maybe I will use Trouble Clef.
