STELLA BY STARLIGHT Tritonic Reharmonization 


Stella By Starlight follows an A B C A form, where the last A cadences into bar seven, before turning around in bar eight. I use the standard key of Bb major for the melody of this reharm. The tritonic key grouping of D, Bb, and Gb starts each A section. The grouping of C, Ab, and E follow in the A sections and the full B section. The C section begins with the Eb, B, and G grouping, and moves to F, Db, and the dominant of A before returning to the last A section with a turnaround in place of the resolution. 

The only melody change I used was in bar seven of the second A section. The F natural is lowered to an E natural.  

The fine is on the E in the seventh bar of the last A section. Here are my changes:

A   D   F7   |   Bb   Db7   |   Gb   A7b9   |   D-7   G7   |   C   Eb7   |   Ab   B7   |   E   |   Bb-7   Eb7   ||
B   Ab   |   D-7   G7   |   C   Eb7   |   Ab   B7   |   E   G7   |   C   Eb7   |   Ab   |   F-7   Bb7   ||
C   Eb   F#7   |   B   D7   |   G   Bb7   |   Eb   D7b9   |   G-7   C7   |   F   Ab7   |   Db   E7b9   |   Bb-7   Eb7   ||
A   D   F7   |   Bb   Db7   |   Gb   A7b9   |   D-7   G7   |   C   |   F#-7   B7   |   E   |   Bb-7   Eb7   ||

The dominant chords should be altered according to the melody when playing the head in bar six (B7alt) of the first A section, bar four (B7alt) of the B section, and bar two (D7b9) of the C section. Have fun!  [ top ]
