If I Had You > Chords for B Section

Hi Folks, This week we finish up the chords and rhythm to "If I had you" keep in mind that during the melody you play the intro chords between the first and second A section and leading into the solo also. During the solo the changes between the As are the simple 3/6/2/5 which is Dm7 G7 Cm7 F7. I show a few different ways to play the bridge changes, both harmonically and rhythmically to break it up. I also give my point of view on a few things at the end of the lesson. Hope you enjoy it!

Cheers, Duke

Hi @Duke.  Terrific show at Regatta!  Great to hear so many songs from the lessons.

I completely agree with you about the need for Blues in Jazz.  I want to learn Blues because it is the source of everything good in popular music-- whatever it is called.

Thanks guys, If you are looking for a great sounding hand made archtop check out JW Murphy guitars. They are an incredible deal for the money. Less than half of many other makers!
