Exciting times! Summer show!
Here is a handy video to talk you through the arrangement we’ll be playing at the fringe show.
The set will be:
Ordinary world – (see this page and video for a recap on that
A vocal only number, Factory girl.
The Fabulous Finale in A minor! As per video above. A three section arrangement that will delight punters.
Finale – Section 1: We’re going to open with the chords from ‘Babe I’m Gonna Leave You’ (as below) played as written.
Section 2: Then we’re going to switch to a mainly Am G F E chord progression, and do some of Wade in the Water, a bluesy standard. Once classic way of arranging songs is to have guitars play the main melody of the vocals either before or after the vocals come in, so the first time the chords come in the lead guitars are going to play the lead parts on the RH side of the page. The chords are below. Quite easy, just watch out for the change on fourth time around when it’s just Am and E. Don’t play the rhythms written, see the vid for how to strum.
We’re going then move into the last part of the arrangement, which is Hit the Road, Jack.
Here are the original songs as references, transposed to correct key.
