Hey guys, Georgia On My Mind is one of my favorite tunes. I especially love the Ray Charles version, as it’s super behind the beat. I tried to capture the vibe of the Ray Charles version of Georgia On My Mind here. I hope you like it!
Georgia On My Mind Notes:
When writing a chord melody arrangement from a Real Book, you can totally change the melody / harmony. I did this here, because Ray did this. That said, it’s important to learn the real structure before improvising.
I used some of my Positional Minor 7th Chord Inversions in this tune. Be sure to check that lesson out as well.
