Look up www.realbook.us.


But they only have a couple of these tunes.


I'll bet your teacher asked you to listen to these tunes and develop your own chord charts. And maybe you found that a bit difficult.


Take one, a slower one, and, at the very least, figure out the roots of the chord for the entire song.


Group these chords by 4 measure phrases.


If you can get one done by your lesson, you'll have learned a ton.


Good Luck...

Yep. I'm the other voice in the head of davebrownbass.
