Someday My Prince Will Come Tutorial
Despite the Disney connotations, ‘Someday My Prince will Come’ was a very popular tune with the jazz musicians of the 20^th^ century and continues to be played in jazz clubs, hotel lobbies and at weddings.
The form of the tune is four eight-bar sections: A, B, A, C. The A sections are identical, but the B and C sections have different harmonies and melodies. The song is also written in 3/4 making it a jazz waltz, and it’s usually played in the key of Bb major.
Notable recordings of the song include the Dave Brubeck version. He was the first jazz musician to record the tune. The Bill Evans and Scott LaFaro take on the 1960s album Portrait in Jazz is worth listening to. Also Miles Davis recorded the tune in the 1960s which is definitely worth checking out.
We’re going to start off with some simple left hand voicings and then up the tempo and add some bigger voicings for the second time through.
