I just published a new arrangement to my sheet music page. It is an early advanced version of “Does Jesus Care?”

There are some challenges in reharmonizing a song like this. I will talk about some of my choices in a later post. In terms of modifications to make it easier to play, I don’t have much because nothing is horribly technical. You might want to thin out some of the big chords in the second chorus. Another easy thing to do (and I note that I did it myself in my recording) is simplify the 16th note octave runs in bars 45 and 47. Just change them to 8th note runs and keep the melody notes.

This arrangement should have come to you already if you are in the Monthly Hymn Arrangement Club.

Here is the demo. If you don’t see a video below, click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvqhtOZXZV4

    The title of this blog post threw me off. I’m not familiar with this particular hymn, so my first thought was that this blog was about whether or not Jesus cared about the fact that you had a new arrangement. LOL.
