    Quick challenge - and a big ask...

    Hi everyone,

    I've been a bit quiet recently (other than the excitement over the new car ) because I am in the midst of putting together an album of music (featuring my piano and trombone playing) for my mother's birthday!

    Everything is going well, except I have hit a complete arrangers block with one track - "Someone to Watch Over Me". I have the main body of the work going OK (needs some editing, but it's all there) but I wanted to use the introduction to the piece with trombone playing the tune in front of a lush string backing - think 50's Big Band / Sinatra or Nat King Cole ballad stylie with some tasty altered chords.

    Well I just can't get it - don't know why, but probably because of all the work I am putting into all the other tracks.

    Anyway...... I was thinking that there might be some kind soul on here who might like to have a go at scoring this 24 measure intro for me???????? Probably wishful thinking, but there are some very kind and generous people on this forum who might like a challenge.

    If anyone is interested here is a pdf of the intro leadline:

    and here is an early mix mp3 of the tune that follows the intro:

    The sting in the tail is that I really need to crack this by the weekend - a very big ask, I know.

    Just to confirm - this is not a commercial recording, just a one off CD for my mum.

    So there's the challenge. Anyone up for it???

    Not unless you want a banjo in it

    RN-
    I'll have a go tonight but I may alter and substitute a few chords.
    Even if most of what I do stinks, you may find something of value
    or you can eliminate everything I do, which may help you narrow
    down your choices.

    PS--You have Finale AND Overture, yes??

    Not me... lol. Whenever I try to write material
    like this it comes out like Stravinsky gone psychotic.

    Well, I can't possibly do better than Terry

    Do you still want to see what I'm doing, or is the point now moot??
