Above is a video performance of Kevan Tolley's arrangement of When Suuny Gets Blue. Click below for free Kevan Tolley chord-melody arrangements in pdf format. Kevan explains that these arrangements are meant to be played rubato and with individuality. He thinks of them as a stepping stone to one's creative expression. We hope you enjoy them. Be sure to check back often as Kevin has promised to provide new arrangements from time to time.
Kevan started out playing Gordon Lightfoot tunes, and graduated to Joe Pass. He played in weekend bands for over 30 years and recently did a tour of Scandinavia with a country group. In addition to guitar he also plays keyboards and currently has a little trio 'B' side Music.
Kevan loves chord melody and got to the point where writing out arrangements became redundant as he never play a song the same way twice. So he figured that some beginners and intermediate players might like a "shell" where they could add their own flavor.
What you will find in this set of tab are tunes consisting of what are known as Chord Melody arrangements. These arrangements can be played as is, but fingerstyle players also have all the necessary information to construct arrangements to their own style. Feel free to send Kevan an e-mail if you have any questions about the music you find here.
