Close To You Lyrics
Go to Close To You lyrics.
Go to Carpenters Biography.
Carpenters Close To You was written by Burt Bacharach so we are in for some clever chordal movement!
Starting off with an Aadd9, Bacharach cleverly disguise where the tonal center is since an add9 chord could be pretty much any of the 7 chords.
Adding melody to Close To You chords
During the VI chord the backing vocal sings down the scale at 1:37.
In Spy Tunes version Sam plays this melody before the vocal, all ready at 0:48.
Tricks like these are really important when arranging, if you start by learning the vocal melody you can choose when to incorporate this.
The deeper you go like this when arranging the more choices you will have.
You might find that this happens in every song you attempt.
You might also find that a melody is always connected to a chord.
