Harmonizing tune #4

This piece is starting to take shape. There’s a lot of trial and error. The concept is to evolve the harmonic complexity of the trombone lines as the piece progresses. There is a fairly simple syncopated beat threaded throughout. The trick is getting the sounds to blend and make sense with the trombone.

This is the first piece that I’ve been notating on Finale. I’m making small changes to the harmonies and without a permanent record of the writing, I’ll burden myself unnecessarily. Again, lots of trial and error as I write and listen. But it’s coming along nicely.
