I got the call to play this session the two days before it was recorded. I asked the producer what key the singer would be using, then hung up the phone and started Googling the chord changes for the song. Then I worked up some ideas across those chord changes and scratched out some rough notes. Was able to knock out the recording a couple days later in 2 or 3 takes.
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.

It was somewhat cool that the piano behind me belonged to Elton John who had been recording there earlier...
