Isn’t that one great tune? Thx Ville, Daniel, for the transcription. Listening to the recording I have the idea that in the last four bars there is no F/G13b9 going on in the 3rd bar. At the end of the tune they repeat this passage several times and I think the first four bars of the B part go as transcribed, in the second four bars they play a plain Fmajor (3rd bar)
It sounds as if the first time round there’s this brooding dim substitution of the one chord in the middle, the second time it’s all fun and the tonic sounds all resolving and vanilla.
The way I see it the chords are all F: Fmajor, F7 (Eb in the bass), F dim, Fm(aeolian with Db in the bass).
On the other hand, in Joey’s solo he seems to stick to Fdim in the third bar.
Anyway, great transcription, thx
Though I am in no position whatsoever to play the song, I went and did it anyway....:)
I took a new look at the tune and here's what I got down. There's a weird non-standard chord at bar 3 of letter B. I previously called that G13b9(#11)/F, which doesn't look easy on the eye, and thus renamed it as FmMaj7#5, which is only slightly conciser. The chord tones are: F, Ab, C#, E, G. How do you guys decode that?
@Ville, FdimMaj7? After all, Fmmaj7#5 is a diminished scale with one note missing. I try to use that scale too, cause you can “bebop” it... but, some people are so good at playing diminished (not me, sadly...).
Nevertheless, I really dig your lead sheet. It’s got all the beauty of the tune and all the harmonic intricacies. I love it.
