Nude Eel ♫ written by Rich Willey and arranged for funk band by The Amazing Wally Minko. Written on November 22nd, 2013 during a memorial broadcast on the radio for John F. Kennedy who had been assassinated on that date in 1963. Among the dozens of things mentioned that day were FDR’s New Deal and that morphed into Nude Eel.
An easy to play minor blues in D minor that will make any band sound hip, this arrangement is 258 bars long at a suggested tempo of ♩ = 120, and the difficulty level of this is easy to intermediate. There is a two-chorus soli section that has some tricky rhythms that lean toward the intermediate level of difficulty.
Written with solo space for Guitar, EVI, Hammond B3 Organ and Bass Trumpet, and also quite easy to open up for more solos if you wish.
