H.H.

This arrangement of the classic jazz standard 'A Nightingale Sang.....' is for 7 string guitar, although could be adapted for 6 string.
The rst half, up to the bridge should be played Rubato, or what I've heard described as Rubato Tempo: you should still be aware of the
pulse in relation to the melody, but feel free to push and pull as you feel t. Joe Pass was a master of this. The Bridge until the end should
be played in a gentle swing tempo. When playing 7 String guitar, its important not to swamp very chord voicing with bass notes, however
tempting it may be! Knowing when to play a bass note, and when to hold o is a matter of personal taste, I think less is more in an
arrangment like this. One of the advantages of 7 string is that it allows us to play a good bass note in the kep of Eat, so useful in a
standard like this.
Harmonically this is a pretty straighforward arrangment, perhaps in the style of Bucky Pizzarelli. One thing I love to do is play the melody
on one of the bass strings and play a chord on top. I do that on the 2nd half of the bridge here. It always presents a challenge - unless
the melody note is the root, 3rd or 5th, you'll have to experiment with unusual chord voicings. Try it on
'A Foggy Day' and you'll see what I mean!
H.H.
