California Girls (The Beach Boys)

California Girls (The Beach Boys)


A faithful interpretation of this classic with a dose of unexpected chord changes thrown in for good measure. Always a crowd pleaser.

Since this is such a recognizable tune, I decided to stay as close to the original as possible. Never quite able to leave well enough alone, I injected a sudden shot of classical chord changes (is there such a thing?) in bars 55 through 58 and again (keeping the symmetry) in bars 75 through 76. Play with a swing and as much humor as possible. This piece should be used the way sherbet is used in between meals at those super fancy restaurants, i.e. - to break up two heavy compositions.
