Hi Jack,
You're welcome. Paul did the biggest part of the work with his arrangement.

That was awesome Bert. I really like the changes you made to some of the harmonies in the chorus. What a great way to end my working week.

Thanks for sharing.

You're welcome, and you thanks for the nice arrangement. I didn't change much. Changed the f bass note in bar 10 to a loose d (making things easier) and in bar 14 dropped the f and f# one octave. So the harmonies were already there.

Regards, Bert

Hi Luuttuaja,
You're welcome. Yes, it may be in need of some repeat lines.

Very nice playing and arrangement. :bravo:

I like the slight variations in the melody and harmony - or perhaps, they're not variations. I'm not Australian, so maybe I don't know it as well as I think!

Anyway, very enjoyable! :casque:
