Song by Song Guide to Wedding Bells in the Key of J, Part 1

(Over the next 12 days the blog will spotlight one song each day from Wedding Bells in the Key of J.)

Why did I include an arrangement of this song?

"Marry Me" is one of the most romantic new songs I’ve heard in the last year by one of my favorite groups.

How did I compose the arrangement?

I based the arrangement on Train’s simple but memorable melody and guitar accompaniment. I tried to capture the emotion of the chorus without distracting from the rhythmic guitar line. I’m very pleased with how it turned out.

Any interesting facts about the song?

"Marry Me" was the very first song I recorded in my home studio.
