The Christmas Song
I got the call to play this session the night before it was recorded. Two songs were going to be recorded - THE CHRISTMAS SONG and HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS. I asked the producer what keys the singer would be using, then hung up the phone and started Googling the chord changes for the songs. Then I worked up some ideas across those chord changes and scratched out some rough notes. Was able to knock out the recording the next day in 2 takes for each of the songs.
The proactive work I've done learning the fretboard really well helps me to come up with arrangements like this much faster than when the fretboard was a mystery to me.
