This week I’m going to show you how to play the melody and chords to Butter and Eggs simultaneously. The basic approach isn’t very far from the one used on other songs like Wildwood Flower, but there are a few extra factors that make this interesting. The A part, which is very simple to play, utilizes some beautiful sus chords, which gives the music an open, airy feel. The B part supplies a beautiful and relatively simple opportunity to play counterpoint: the bass line ascends from B stepwise up to C#, D then finally E, all while the melody is happening on top. Fun stuff!
