Bonny at Morn (Traditional, Northumberland)

This beautiful tune uses only four chords. I introduce an easy backup using simple arpeggios and a counter melody. The primary concept is that if you fully understand a chord progression in a tune, you should be able to “see” the chords in both the simple melody and arrangement (and of course the backup). I present a “full model” but relatively straightforward arrangement that utilizes two & three note chords, fills, drones, and dissonance. I also include a counter melody to demonstrate how you take a chord progression and create something entirely new!
