    (It's Just) Another Day (qtr 115) - Paul McCartney

    I think 115/qtr note might be a little slower than the orig. recording, but it's the tempo that's working for me as I try to play it & sing it (man, he pops off a lot of high G's w/ what sounds like no effort!).

    Also, made some of the chords a little richer, mostly in the 3/4 section, just 'cause I liked the way they sounded w/ the player. And, I made a real long coda instead of a 3rd ending, couldn't figure out another way to make the ending work.

    Hope you like!

    Heart of the Country - Paul McCartney

    Actually, hadn't posted this one yet, I was trying to, but got kicked off the wifi at my favorite coffee shop (1/2 hr. limit on wifi during "peak hours"?! Boo!).

    Little explanation - the bars that are 3/4 followed by 5/4 are just two bars of 4/4 written that way to trick the player into playing a chord on an off-beat. I discovered this trick while working on "Good Day Sunshine" - you can get the player to play a chord on the "and" of beat 2 by using 3/4, but using 4 spaces for the measure, & putting the chord you want syncopated on the 3rd space of that bar. But, if it's a song that is actually in 4/4, you have to follow the 3/4 bar immed. w/ a 5/4 bar.

    Also, all the N.C. bars are for the be-bop-ish melody that Paul plays & sings at that point - McCartney does jazz! (well, almost) AND, just to make things fun for the guitar player/singer, he's actually playing this song in the C chord position w/ the entire guitar tuned down a whole step (std. tuning). Right now, I'm trying it in the key that it's in (Bb), but w/ the capo on the 3rd fret, in the G chord position.

    Good Day Sunshine - The Beatles (Lennon, McCartney)

    Revision of the one 1st posted on this thread. Changed to A maj., orig. key's just too high to sing for me. Also jazzed up the chords a bit, & doubled the inst. interlude in the middle, to give my flute player buddy a little more to do.

    I used that trick I mention above to make the syncopations work better. They still miss the big cymbal crashes from Ringo - what a drummer, how many other pop/rock drummers could've played all the mixed meter stuff that Paul & John kept throwing at him? All You Need Is Love, Strawberry Fields, Good Mornin', ad finitum...

    Good Day Sunshine (revised, in A) - The Beatles (Lennon, McCartney)

    Changed the title to differentiate it from the other one posted on pg. 1 of this thread.

    So I guess the list on page 1 does not get updated as I see the songs on this page are not on it? I searched "Black" the thread and found nothing so I guess nobody has done Baby's in Black?
    Don't post a playlist as the songs in a Realbook if the changes aren't from the book.
    If you do transcribe changes from a book put it in the title RB1, RB2, GGB, Sher, etc
