Thread: Moonlight In Vermont- Karl Suessdorf

    Default Moonlight In Vermont- Karl Suessdorf

    Moonlight in Vermont had a slight bug in it; the two bar coda was not notated as such, so it was playing through each time.

    I made some slight alterations as well as fixing the ending to make it easier to read. I also extended the coda to three bars so that a ritardondo could be faked. The Sher Music chords were used (mostly the same), so that's how I labeled it here.

    The lyrics are unusual in that they do not rhyme.

    John Blackburn, the lyricist, has been quoted as saying, "After completing the first 12 bars of the lyric, I realized there was no rhyme and then said to Karl, 'Let’s follow the pattern of no rhyme throughout the song. It seemed right.'"

    The lyrics are also unconventional in that each verse (not counting the bridge) is a haiku.

    Nice workaround for the ritard.

    Cheers,
