How do you arrange music? This time I wrote the bass line first then added the notes between that and the original melody to harmonise. I just experimented with one or two notes until I found something that I liked the sound of.

Here is my arrangement of Here’s that rainy day.

then I adapted it a bit for guitar here

then chord symbols added here

…The chord names are just a result of what they happened to come out as i.e. not thinking of the chord names before writing the arrangement but using them to label sounds that happen to come out rather than the other way around….now to try and play it!
