    @dogletnoir could you clarify the format for me? Following the cheat sheet and the A-B-A-C stated seems to leave me in a very strange place, somewhere up the preverbial creek, without a paddle...

    There seem to be a lot more bars of Em7 | F#m7 than the chart shows. :D

    EDIT: In fact, it goes round that cycle six times at the start, whereas the chart shows it as twice.

    I've got the BPM to 115 on 6/8 and the 4 bar intro and changes line up ok, but they're not always the changes I expected. :D

    And to clarify, we are encouraged to submit contrafact tracks throughout the month but a track with the right stuff should be submitted only during the last week of December?

    are you including the 8 bar vamp that isn't on the lead sheet?

    Are we supposed to be psychic? If it isn't in the first post, which lays out the basics for the exercise, then it doesn't exist.

    From the first post:
    The arrangement has a 4 bar drum intro, an 8 bar vamp cycling between Emi7 and F#mi7,
    then A B A C and a 12 bar ending vamp outro cycling between the Emi7 and the F#mi7 again
    before the final Emi7 chord.


    The lead sheet shows the chords for individual sections, but the sequence of parts on the track isn't what's on the chart.
    THAT's outlined in the arrangement.
    i changed things around a bit to be able to get all the various sections covered in less than 3 minutes and to keep it
    interesting to play over.

    The chart should be for the arrangement we're supposed to be playing. I've just wasted a whole afternoon trying to sort it out.

    In my own defense, i did spell it all out in the first post.
    i provided the chart with the chords and the various sections,
    and then wrote out a 'head arrangement' in longhand explaining
    the order of things.

    A head arrangement is a roughly outlined musical arrangement that is played from memory
    and is often learned by ear.
    Sometimes a music director might come up with one on the bandstand; if it's during a break,
    you would probably make some notes on the chart to be able to follow the alterations the MD made
    to what is written.

    My apologies if this was too confusing.

    So the first Em "A" section is only 1 X? Not 2x, then major, then one more minor..? this makes a difference to me.

    Signed, curious.

    Yep. Because it's NOT supposed to be MFT at the moment.
    It's just 'some stuff i like a lot'.
    Going from the A section to the C section is more proof of that.
    :D

    "...last week or so...", my intention being to have the actual tune happening leading up to the X-mas holiday.
    So let's say starting on Saturday the 21st of December and onwards until the end of the month...
    do you think that will be enough time for people to give the actual tune its due diligence?

    I'm sure we'll all get to it, in our own different ways. You've put in so much work on these threads, E, and I for one would be devastated if you thought we didn't appreciate it. :thumb::):thumb:

    Tiny naive digressions: Would horn players through stuff at me if I were playing this in this key?

    That written chord symbol that looks lik E-7 is E minor 7???

    No time to do the real work but I can now actually play a lot of these things.
    A bit of shedding and I think I could at least comp it competently, and my own
    view that if I learn the comp it, I will be able to play bass and solo seems to be true.

    No worries... i probably should have made more of an effort to make it clear.
    Just don't blame poor Mia; it was my fault, not hers, LOL.
    Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.
