You're the best thing
Chorded by Lisa aka The Keynote

Chord
Chord/Bass Note
(Melody Note)...the first few should get you going to work the inversions of the chords. I encourage writing the
melody notes out corresponding with the lyrics. I've given the first few, train your ear to hear the rest of the
single melody notes. Then start to work your chords for inversions, always mindful of easy (MINIMAL
MOVEMENT) transitions for fluid sounds, and keeping your melody on the top of the voicings when you're
leading (guiding) your soloist.
