30 Bars Down……

The re-harmonization project continues….. Here are two versions of my re-harmonization of the Beatles “Within You and Without You.” I really like the way it sounds at the 33 second mark.
For those of you who don’t know, re-harmonizing a song involves adding different chords to an existing melody. In this case there weren’t any chords to begin with!

Here is the sheet music for all of you musicians out there:

The Medley Is Finished

Coming in at just a little over eight minutes long, the Beatles Medley is finished (at least this version). There are five songs in one: You Never Give Me Your Money, Sun King, Mean Mr. Mustard, Polythene Pam and She Came in Through the Bathroom Window. I hope you like it. And I wonder if it was Pam who fell through the bathroom window?

Abbey Road Side Two

Do you remember a few weeks ago when I said I was going to re-create Side 2 of Abbey Road with my own versions of the songs? You do? Good! Because it is slowly coming together and I now have three different versions of four of the songs here.

And I think Mean Mr. Mustard deserves his own spot because the guitar is so nice:

Fanfare for The Common Person

Here are two versions of “Fanfare for The Common Man” by Aaron Copland.
I don’t think you have ever heard anything quite like it. (I know I haven’t.)

And here is a version by Emerson, Lake and Palmer that I am sure you’re gonna like!

Picks up the Dice
From the Table
Of the Local Casino
With her friend Dino

Look at her gambling
Throwing her pay
Down the drain
And she’s feeling
No pain
Some say she’s insane

All the unlucky gamblers
Where do they get their dough
All the unlucky gamblers
Why not just see a show

I see it every time in Vegas
