of the arrangements that's proved very
popular in learn by playing tunes
is Georgia, Georgia On My Mind, and I've
thought it would be a good idea to.
To go through this again here because I
noticed that a lot of the students
that have been playing Georgia on My Mind
haven't strayed too much
from the arrangement that I played there.
So with this section where I'm guiding you
I'm just going to give you a very simple
That we are just gonna use as our template
as we do with all the other tunes in, in,
in this section.
The first part will be transcribed, just,
and this is just a guide, so
you know the you know the melody.
You know the, the chords and how the
harmony works, and so it's gonna be very,
very simple in, indeed.
So, I'm going to start off in the key of
E, so we have,
that's the skeleton arrangement we're
going to work from that.
This is where we start to add a few
embellishments, we can
put some fills in here and there, so I'll
show you the kind of thing that I mean.
And you, you can obviously use some of the
these embellishments and
fillers that I'm I'm using here but the
idea here is that we work together and
I will guide you into coming up with your
your own arrangement.
But this think of this this is kind of a
little kick start to get us started.
So, I played you the very basic skeleton
we can just add a few other things here.
So let, I'll just do a couple of, whatever
kind of comes into my,
my head that I think be suitable for this.
Here we go.
Here's a fill.
A little movement.
Remember this one.
ninth descending dramatically in, in,
around the middle.
See, so you can see how.
Some of these ideas and transferable.
You can put, you can play them in, in
That's some kind of fill.
I'm kind of playing around with that.
I'm not playing the whole,
all of the chord.
I'm just playing the root note and the
And it's got a little interval here.
exaggerating what I'm doing here, but this
is just so you can really, really see it.
I'll just bring it, really up, up to the
Got a bit of pentatonic blues scale in
[LAUGH] And there's plenty of room to, to
put that in.
This is really good.
We can go into tempo.
We can start doing things like that.
Now, the way.
All these, these guided arrangements work
and the only way they,
they work really is that you have to
submit a video and you can submit a video
of the very simple scales and arrangement
at the very beginning.
You, or you could if you like, you could
Some of the little ideas that I just
played around with there, or
just any little ideas that you've got of
your own that, that you want to do there.
But submit a video and from there, we can
start working together.
And I'll guide you through your own
I'll help you along the way.
But the idea is that you.
Create this, this arrangement.
You're not just copying what I play,
you're becoming a really,
a creative musician rather than a
mechanical musician and
just learning where, where to put your
fingers, you know?
This is, you're, you're making something
up yourself, and you can move it around.
This is an organic process.
So, we haven't got arrangements that are,
are carved in stone.
They're here to be tampered with [LAUGH]
messed around with.
Any ideas that, that, that come to mind
and even, I think when,
when you submit a video you can,
you can actually send a few ideas in as
well rather than just playing.
Just playing the, the, the simple melody.
If there's a couple of ideas that you've
had just say, hey Martin, I've,
I've thought of this, I wonder if this
will, will work as well.
And then I'll, I'll help you cuz I'm gonna
guide you through your own arrangement.
