Thank you to everyone who attended Folk Harmonic Last night! And a big thanks to Amanda, Bob & Wendy for helping keep things rolling once all of the layers were added in.
We reviewed the parts for Real Midnight at the start of class, I've broken the score apart so that there is one with just vocals/harmonies. be warned that the rhythms are approximate, things change slightly in each verse. When you're practicing take a listen to the original and see if you can find 3 different spots where things change. We'll highlight those together next week and figure out what we want to do with each one.

Real Midnight - Parts
There are only 3 chords in this tune (in this arrangement) one of which only gets played twice.
Guitars: Capo at 3rd fret, Play G & C shapes... the 'odd' chord is D
Everyone else: Bb & Eb... the odd chord is F
Ain't no Fun to be Alone in San Antone - Gene Watson
Since its hard to get your hands on a copy of this tune I've grabbed the audio off of a youtube video to share with y'all. Buy Gene Watson on amazon over $100??? for the CD? nope!
Check out the charts below, and take a look at the sheet music if you get a chance, it may help you place the melody even if you don't read music.
the original recording is in the Key of Bb, I will try to do a recording in G for you in the next couple days.
When you are looking at the box chart IGNORE THE GREY CHORDS!!!! I have particular shapes in mind, and we will go over them in class together.
