Post your covers!

What better way of celebrating the acquisition of my new amp head and cab than with a new cover.

Moon Dance is older than most of the members here, but it remains a favorite among blues / jazz fans. The hardest part for me was staying in the groove for four and a half minutes; particularly during the piano and sax solos.
Jazz is a strange animal.
I suppose I could have done better over time, but I didn’t want to devote too much of my practice time on it.

Excellent!!! Another favorite of mine since I am older than the song. Ha!
Where/How did you get the music for the song?

I purchase the songs I want to play from Amazon. They’re usually only a couple dollars. I then remove the bass with Izotope RX8 and take it from there.

Great song, great cover! Lots to memorize on that one. I like the animated moon haha.

Most of my favorite songs are older than me :upside_down_face:

@JerryP did you mean where do I get the music sheet for the song, or the song itself?

Yes, did you buy the sheet music or transcribe it?

I got the chord sheet from Chordify and created my own bassline from it using Crescendo.

To be clear, I often transcribe the bass line, but this song seemed to require I create my own.

Looks like it was an ARP Quadra with maybe a Sequential Prophet-5.

Are you pleased with Chordify? I was thinking about using it.

I like it, but I wish it had a bass clef option. It does serve well though, just to get to know where all the changes are in a song.
