Great books for sure.

Personally I find I get a lot more out of the learning process (assuming that's why you're doing this) when I figure out an arrangement by myself.

Here's a song I used as inspiration for my own arrangement.

Wow! Such great suggestions from all of you. Thank you. I'm open to many types of music so don't be concerned about style. Obviously, the Galbraith books need a look.

Oh, and that Chet guy....what a hack. If I can't play better than that in a few weeks I'm giving up (he, he, he).

If you like the Beatles you will find some on the U Tabs and YouTube: Yesterday is a good one to learn and easier there is Blackbird.

I've been working on Ted's "The Look of Love" for the last month. It's a beautiful arrangement with some lovely chord voicings. I still have a long way to go before it's smooth. Some of the stretches required have taken a lot of work but it is well worth the effort.

There is a segment near the end of Video #7 of the California Vintage Guitar seminar where he plays it:

He also explains how to read his chord charts in this video.

I plan on tackling his "Ray Charles Jump Back Blues" next......
