Happy Thanksgiving! I don’t know of any Thanksgiving songs that really pluck my bird, but I joined a Jam of the Week page on FaceBook recently and this is the recent tune for people to post.
I tried a few new ideas on this one that have been simmering for a bit. The main change is listening to a few different recordings before I ever play the tune. The main purpose, in my mind, in doing this is to have a general sound in my head before learning to play the tune. I’m not really concerned about ‘Playing’ ideas as much as I am listening for melody-phrasing ideas, a general concept of arrangement/fill placement, and did I find a recording I like to hear.
Anyway, I hope you like it:
