Mr Green Genes is a really easy tune to play, and it is
also a good one to illustrate basic elements of harmony
and melody. Here is my arrangement, kind of a composite
of the _Best Band You Never heard.._ and _Hot Rats_ versions.
Here are the main chords....I have used many different voicings
of these chords....
Dm7 - G - Dm7 - G - Dm7 - G - Dm7 - G
Cmaj7 - Am7 - Cmaj7 - Am7
F - G - Am - Bb
Then it repeats again and again until the end, where it goes
F - G - Am - Bb - C - Dm - Dbm - Dm
Now the melody is like this......after doing the above once
(based on the _Hot Rats_ version).
Dm7 G (4x)
1----------------------------------------------------
2----------------------------------------------------
3--7--9-10 10 10 10--9 7----7--4-4-4-4-4-5-4----------
4------------------------10------------------5--------
Cmaj7 Am7 (2x)
2---------------5-6--8-----
3---------4-5-5-----------
4--5-5-5-7---------------
then the F - G - Am - Bb part goes like this.
Play any chord voicings you want!! Frank plays many.
The soloing is based on the C major scale, all positions.
Play the _Uncle Meat_ version, and the _Hot Rats_ version, and
also the _Best Band_ version... and you will be styling!
now here are the words with the chords....notice how the
above transcribed melody fits beautifully with the words.
I love this song!!
