Below is a harmonization of the supplied melody from Doug
McMullen's "Harmonization Project
. It's a little strange as it flirts a bit with
the key of G, which is doesn't always strongly suggest (but
for some reason I like it anyway). There is a little bridge that
goes to Emin as well, and a turnaround that should go to a
Gmaj (okay, it doesn't really "turn around", but it would if you
ended the tune there on Gmaj7), but instead goes back to
measure one's Cmaj7. The harmonization is a bit
unconventional in spots, but I learned alot (as I always to)
from the effort! I tried to approximate the chord symbols as
best as the groove builder would allow, but you will find a
couple more chords in there than the builder suggests (i.e.
the B-7 on beat 4 of measure 15).
In order to play the sequence, you may have to set your loop
thingamijiggy....you know how it is.
***This is not an actual lesson, but instead a fretbuzz
response in "lesson" form. You could, however, learn quite
a bit by checking out the above fretbuzz link and getting in on
the action...Pump up those musical muscles!
