so I ran into a bit of a problem recently, I am a fiddler who is very interested in the jazz and blues style, pretty good at theory not the strongest ear but I make do. I recently began working with a singer and we had a guitarist. We were requested for a gig and agreed then our guitarist left us. All I have is the sheet music with melody and chords. Theoretically I know I could use chops or a string line but I would like something that's violin/viola appropriate and can be sustained/changed through out the song it would just be me and a singer. We are working on standards such as
"when sunny gets blue"
"someone to watch over me"
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
P.s Also if you feel as though this won't work or if there is a better way to go about any of this please let me know, I am completely opened to suggestions.
