Pleasanton CA Guitar Lessons
The other day, I was talking to a guitar student in Pleasanton CA about Van Morrison. Years ago, I did my own arrangement of Moondance by Van the Man.
Moondance is 3rd solo album by Northern Irish singer – songwriter Van Morrison released on Warner Brothers Records Feb 28 1970 and climbed to #29 on top 100 Billboard trade magazine hits songs. Moondance was critically acclaimed when 1st released and established Morrison as a major artist. This song helped introduce him into Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999. In 2003 it was ranked #65 on Rolling Stone magazines list of “The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
In my arrangement (download Moondance pdf) in both standard music notation as well as tab, it’s the rhythm accompaniment so you can sing with it or have another guitarist play the melody which will be in my next Blog. It’s in a standard jazz walking bass groove and an advanced arrangement I created. I welcome your comments and also questions so please sign up on my home page and I will gladly answer your email questions or instant messages or even set up a SKYPE internet session for free to help you on this arrangement.
