Here I wanted to do 2 things. First I wanted to use repetition to sort of bolster the song for the listener. So I went back to the bouncy little intro that I had before. I’ve included the transition from the last section with this so you can see how I did that. Second, I wanted to represent the whirlwind or the rush of cramming all that wedding planning into a few months before the event. So I figured the tempo and the melody of the introduction would do that. You’ll see some variation throwen in there to represent moments of fun or excitement or whatever else happens in the wedding planning stages. The first 9 measures lead into the intro repeat. Then you’ll see the variation after that kind of answering the introduction phrase. Finally I slow the tempo at the end to get reaady to repeat the other section, the main phrase of the song as a reminder of the bride and groom’s love for each other in all the craziness.
Part 1: flash back
As you can see, this is the return to the main phrase of the song, but only briefly. Next is the climactic finish, the wedding itself. I knew I needed a strong finish so I purposefully picked up the tempo and threw in 16th and 32nd notes to speed it up. I also added big jumps in the melody to make it a dynamic and dramatic finish.
Part 5: the wedding
The Tab above shows the finale of the song. Notice the tremelo technique used and that 5-3-4 sequence is played very rapidly with the accent on the bass note beat.
