Past the "norm"..Yes Lord song as example...

arr by Hammondman!



You can sneek in chords that totally contradict what you're used to hearing!

The key to it is the melody note...let's take the song: "Yes Lord" in the key of F



Let's play the melody: F_A, F_A, F_G_A_A_A_Bb_A, F_G_A_A_A_Bb_A_G, G_F // F_A_C_D // Bb_A_G_F



NOW YOU WONT PLAY THE SONG NOTE FOR NOTE, YOU CAN, BUT THAT'S FOR THE SOLOIST / SINGER,
YOU'RE GOING TO ALTER THE CHORD AT KEY POINTS IN THE SONG, WITH THE MELODY NOTE AS THE
TOP NOTE OF THE RIGHT HAND CHORD.

You can have fun with this! It still keeps the melody, you can tell it's the song, you have to figure out, what
chord can I put with the melody note, and at what point in the song?
