    Default Over the Rainbow chord melody

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to share my arrangement of OVER THE RAINBOW that I recorded at Peghead Nation world headquarters while taking a break from putting together my chord melody course for them. Hope you enjoy!

    What a gorgeous and sublime arrangement! I love what you do, Aaron. Thanks for being you.
    Play that which you feel is groovy, get down with your bad self, and shake your money maker if it makes sense for you to do so.

    Most excellent. Love the tune and your arrangement.
    Somewhere over the rainbow we'll all get little fingers like that.

    My little finger sometimes feels a bit stiff. Does anyone have good hand exercises/stretches they want to share?

    I would think that working your way through any of Aaron Weinstein's chord melody arrangements would exercise and stretch every stinkin' finger you've got. :D

    Interesting idea. I'll have to give that a try sometime.

    I fully splay out both hands and hold until I feel some fatigue; shake out; repeat. I do this on the run. And here's a good finger/fret exercise, courtesy of Dawg's MWN, the Apollon issue.

    Thank Aaron, beautiful arrangement. I very much appreciate your approach to all things music. Your facilitated jams at Django in June were great for me.

    Amazing and wonderful and brilliant! Thank you Aaron for sharing this with us all. As a piano player, this is the competency level I still hope to achieve on the mandolin. Your Peghead Nation course on chord melody playing might just be ideal. Will check it out!
