The chord progression for this tune is basically a I(G) - vi(Em) - ii(Am) - V7(D7) pattern for 2 measures. That in turn is then repeated 4 times for each "A" section. (Poetry has this form). Instead of starting on the Tonic (I), it starts on the Supertonic 7 (ii7). The pattern being ii7 - V7 - I7 - ii7. One measure of iii and biii for the first ending.

The bridge follows the same pattern for the first four measures. Then it moves to the Subdominant IV7 followed with a parallel movement = Cm7 - Cm6. Now to iii7, biii7, to ii7 - V7. With a special ending previously mentioned in this lesson.

Pages 2 and 3 are for listening. The pages from 4 on are printer friendly.
