Here is the first song we will be doing. It is a fairly easy arrangement of the classic Jazz standard "Have You Met Miss Jones".

It has 5 Guitar parts so let's put a few of you on Gtr. 5. So, for this song...

Guitar 5 will be...
John Bertsch
Jim Felter
Jeff Simko

I've attached practice tracks with the tempo a little slower and individual parts brought out for Gtr. 1 & 5 (combined), Gtr. 2, Gtr. 3, and Gtr. 4. And I've also put the performance track with all of the parts played at tempo.

Take a look at the music. Don't get stressed out about it and we will put it together at the conference.

Time to get to work! Seems to have a few tricky rhythms in there.

I need to take a close look at the bridge and figure out what is happening there.

We have a Bb that appears to be in the key signature
Then it looks like a ii V I in Gb
Then a ii V I in D
Then a ii V I in Gb
follow by a ii V leading back to the I chord of the original key kicking off the chorus.

Did I get that right Steve?

Hey Tom, We are all counting on you to have the melody down and come up with a cool solo. I've got Guitar 5. Should be fun. And yes, I have met Miss Jones. She was my 7th grade music teacher. :laugh:

No pressure though, right?

Tom, I bet you can do it. It's a catchy melody and I already have it stuck in my head. I agree, some tricky rhythm is in there and it moves fast. Hopefully I'll have my part down. The bridge notes sound a bit odd on their own.I guess we need a solo to spice it up!

Yes,

The bridge goes through a bunch of different keys and eventually lands back at the original key. It's a typical jazz AABA format to the song.

If anyone is interested in soloing, just let me know and we'll put you in for a solo.

It's a great tune and I can't wait to hear everyone play it.

I have the melody mostly memorized and down but need to work more on timing.

I took a short stab at soloing last night and I don't know if I will be able to pull that off. It is only 8 bars but the key changes in bar 2 (to Gb), 4 (to D) , 6 (Gb again) and 8 (back to F)making it more tricky. I am trying to get a few other things under my fingers before then so I am not sure how much time I will have to work on it.

List Updated as of June 20.

I decided not to overwhelm everyone and just to leave it with the one song Have You Met Miss Jones.

So, the part assignments are solidified.

See you at the rehearsal!
