This old irish folk tune (aka Danny Boy) is the perfect choice for reharmonization. When it's familiar diatonic melody is set against the highly chromatic harmonic treatment given here, the tune takes on a new life as a true jazz piece. Watch this lesson to see how JazzPianoOnline.com contributor Steve Anderson uses a range of reharmonization techniques to transform the piece from a simple three chord tune to a lush and complex jazz ballad. After the lesson, you can download the complete arrangement in lead sheet or two-hand piano format and enjoy playing this updated classic at the piano.
