I fell in love with this gentle tune when I heard Sharon Shannon play it years ago. I hope you will study the section in the A part where the melody hangs on the note B for four measures. We sub in the relative minor to G (Em) and create a chord progression with a chromatic rising bass line that is powerful (using a few secondary dominants along the way). I walk you through the theory that supports this simple piece. The backup should help you see the chord progression and is much fun to play all by itself. My hope is that you will study and synthesize the melody, arrangement and backup by seeing the chord progression in all the components.
