Hi all,
So . . I heard a few great versions of this tune- and I am struggling a bit with the form and the chords . . .
Anyone got It?
(Mateo- I was working of the one from your website).
CHeers and thanks,
Ben

Ben:

I think it would be something like:

A section:
Cdim7| Cdim7| G7 | C7 |
etc.

B section:
C | C# | C | Bb |
etc

Thanks

Thanks Nwilkins-
What exactly is the form- aaba, abba ?
I think its abba for the melody- but solos?
Thanks

It's AABB with each A and B being 8 bars long as usual

Nwilkins,
Thanks man- that helps- I got the chords for the b right, but as usually overcomplicated the chords for the A.
The form is aabb- great!!
Thanks again
High marks!
Ben

Nwilkins,
Guess so???
I always seem to be the last one to know!
Perhaps . . . If so it might be a bit crowded here, as stephane may ask me to put up some people as well- it's ok, It'll be fun.
Cheers.
B.

Ben, having given more of a listen to Mabel, I think it works better as a straight II7-V7-I(7) in the A section:

D7/A| D7/A | G7 | C(or C7)|

Or for more movement use the tritone sub (Ab7) in the second bar.
