notes on Sesame Street

And so Sesame Street…  we should be able to pretty much stick with the arrangement as I sent it out earlier, except:
the intro is that dut duh, dut duh, dut duh-da-de-dah:
first on chimes alone
then w/ piano as well
then drums
then I start the bouncy bassline (I IV I IV)
then everyone in on the main song (“Sunny Days! Chasin’ the … Blues away!”) TWICE
Then open for solos. We decided to keep the simple I IV I IV for that, so very open
The leader will then count down (or up) 4,3,2,1, and then there’s two bars in piano and bass on the Fifth – that’s everyone’s singlel to
One more time on the main song! Except it ends with “How to get to Sesame Street” 4 times
and then– drums lead in the “Funky Chimes” riff as in the music (our attempt to do https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXkR3XSfwqI )–
Marie starts off, and rhythm section and trombones has that low thing
It’s a simple I I IV IV, and I think it’s the rhythm section that leads the change
