    Default Dream A Little Dream Of Me, mandolin mandocello tenor guitar

    "Dream A Little Dream Of Me" (1931)
    Music: Fabian Andre and Wilbur Schwandt
    Lyrics: Gus Kahn (not in my version -- it's an instrumental cover)


    This is song is best-known in the 1968 cover by Mama Cass with The Mamas & The Papas, but is much older than that with many earlier and later chart versions.

    My instrumental cover for mandolin, mandocello and tenor guitar is based on two separate Musescore transcriptions:

    The tenor guitar chords are from this lead sheet:

    The mandocello bass line and the tenor guitar break are from this version scored for violin and cello:

    The melody line sits very nicely on mandolin -- a joy to play!

    1890s Umberto Ceccherini mandolin
    Vintage Viaten tenor guitar
    Suzuki MC-815 mandocello

    Got no compassion, thinks its a sin
    All he does is sit around an play the Mandolin"

    If you like to play chord melody, I wrote my voicing options for this tune.
    It's not yet an arrangement: you have to find your own way to articulate the voicing... the other half the fun...
