Ted’s Arrangement, with compilation pages by Paul Vachon

My compilation page, changes and comparisons

This is Ted’s arrangement of Someday My Prince Will Come, written for a student at a private lesson on April 10, 2000.  It’s more of an outline rather than a complete arrangement.  This song is from Disney's 1937 animated movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, written by Frank Churchill, with lyrics by Larry Morey.  In a number of jazz fake books its written in the key of Bb, but Ted chose to put it in E.  This is not a difficult arrangement to play, and is pretty self-explanatory.

The second chord in the 2nd measure is marked as “ /3” to indicate that it is a G#7 with the 3rd in the bass (1st inversion).  He also wrote “optional” for the note on the 3rd string – in that case the chord would be G#7(b9)/B#.

On the original chart there are a couple of places in which the progression is:  iii7 - biii dim – ii7.  I like the way that Ted thinks of that dim chord as the i dim maj7, or as i dim extended….

You’ll have to add your own chords for the 2nd ending, since Ted didn’t include one.

Keep in mind that this was written up during a lesson, so it’s not as intricate or as complete as Ted might have done if he had made a more “official” arrangement.

Hope this helps in understanding Ted’s chord-melody approach a little better.
