Again, we have the both sections, their single note melodies and their chords. We've put together a basic chord melody arrangement version.

In this lesson I show how to embellish the basic arrangement and expand all the ideas to make it more interesting and full sounding. A lot of this involves using Drop 2 chord voicings wherever possible and thereby provide the opportunity to insert walking bass lines and a lot of motion in an otherwise static sounding chord comping.
