Quebecois tunes have such a great rhythm, groove, lift or whatever you want to call it. The rhythm in the C part is the classic “moveable accent pattern” that shows up in French Canadian music. It is SO much fun! The B part with the Em to D to C (or Em to Bm to C) is a simple progression that is very satisfying. Check out Sharon Shannon’s epic take on this tune (totally ditched the A part and eventually ditched the B part too) and other more standard versions on Youtube. I present a variety of arranging ideas but hold back a bit to showcase the great rhythm of the C part. I also present a variety of backup ideas that explore different rhythms, harmony and vamps. It might be almost as much fun to play as the melody!
