Hi all. I'm looking for a nice but not too fancy/overcomplicated solo of the above. Can anyone help? Thanks.

I'm afraid I can't help with a source for a solo transcription of GOMM, but I have put together my own rendition of Ray Charles' rendition of "Georgia on my mind". It is written in the key of F major and has a lot of chords and chord variations. It is one of my favorite tunes that I play and sing, but not one of the easiest.

Wish I could be of more assistance.

Thanks for that. I was hoping someone might know of a solo arrangement of the song. Appreciate it won't be exact as too many parts to play but some form of playable chords with tune...

I'm always willing to share what little I know, James. smile

I recorded a version of Georgia on my mind and uploaded it to YT several years ago, but removed it because I felt I could do much better. After years more practicing, my current rendition is much better, to me at least. Looking at the music sheets posted here in your thread, (which I copied and saved, by-the-way:-) the chord progressions look amazingly familiar. However, I have not recorded my latest rendition of Georgia on my mind lately.

That said, I'll try to record it soon and post it on my YT channel and then here... it's actually fun to play, although it is a challenge, for me, at least. And, as you mentioned, my rendition is not a mirror reflection of the actual sheet music, but close (depending on which brand of horse-shoes and hand-grenades you use smile ).

I have recently recorded this version of mine and posted it in the Piano Bar last month. Played by ear, so no sheet music or lead sheet available, sorry to say.

A lovely version, indeed! Bravo! thumb

Similar, but better than mine... smile

Enjoyed listening to it.

For Jamess, I recorded my rendition of Ray Charles' "Georgia on my mind" this afternoon. It may not be 100% in sync with the written version, but playing mostly by ear, I play what I remember hearing and how it is interpreted in my own mind based on what I remember hearing.

Hope it helps, James! smile

My rendition of "Georgia on my mind".

Terrific Rick! Couldn't be better. Love the "pulse" to the song.

That was fantastic, Rick. You are not only a fine pianist but also a good singer.

Thanks for the complements, TomLC and Pianist685! I appreciate it!

On the singing, I do enjoy singing along with my piano music. Usually, you don't have to be quite as skilled at playing the piano in order to supplement the piano music with the singing. smile

On the other hand, playing any musical instrument and singing too can be quite challenging.

Also, for me, the stage-freight can be a hindrance, even if recording yourself with a cam-corder. smile
