  1. Thanks so much, especially for showing the chords, not just saying them. I should be able to tackle this, once I've got all the chords down in the correct sequence. It's not playing them it's remembering them that I struggle with these days. They certainly don't write them like this anymore!

  2. Thanks for sharing. I only play guitar for myself. Still strugling with rhythm in my right hand. Explanation is clear to me. One of my favorite jazz standards.

  3. Your supposed byo be helpful not letting people know that "this song is too hard hard for u you should back off" bruh that doesn't make any sense!?
