When my guitar teacher came up with the song California Dreamin' by The Mamas & The Papas for me to practice during summer break I couldn't really get into it at first. I mean, this song is sooo old and we've heard it sooo many times on the radio. That's usually not the kind of piece that catches my interest so much that I say: I want to learn how to play this on my guitar. BUT in the first lesson after summer break we talked about how you can take a piece of music and make it your new favorite by forgetting all about the versions you know and starting to work it out from the very beginning on an empty sheet. Use more exciting versions of the chords than the standard versions, play around a little. Do it together with somebody else and combine the ideas of two musical minds. This way we came up with this beautiful arrangement which I love to play now! After a tricky intro it starts relatively simple, moves to an interesting and more complex intermediate level in the second verse and takes another turn in the solo. I plan on uploading a video recording, soon, on Until then, this audio export from our Musescore file will have to do: Original The Mamas & The Papas Recording the music sheet / guitar tab refers to:
