Arrangements

Discussion in 'Ask Michael Dimin' started by BIg O, May 14, 2002.


  1. Mike, I've just visited the lessons online site, and two of your arrangements (Misty, Autumn Leaves) are for tunes I played as a teenager. I found learning to play and improvise basslines to to these melodic and more complex chord changes really helped my creativity when playing blues, rock and R&B.

    I really like your bass arrangements for these, and I'm wondering if you have done any for other standards, i.e.:

    Moonlight in Vermont (Blackburn/Suessdorf )
    Corcovado (Jobim)
    Desafinado (Jobim)
    Night and Day (Porter)

    (or any others in that vein?)

    Thanks,

    Thanks for your interest. I have many arrangements for both solo and looped bass. Hopefully, I will be able to put them in an upcoming book (licensing and all that stuff, TBD).

    Here's an idea of the some of the solo bass stuff (no looper) that I have arranged

    Watch What Happens
    How High The Moon
    Shadow of Your Smile (on my CD)
    3 Views of a Secret (on my CD)
    All The Things You Are

    and more..
    my book. The Chordal Approach is a good primer into the development of these kind of arrangements
