I would sure be interested in your thoughts about good chord changes to "One for My Baby (and one more for the road)"

Thanks so much!

Sandy

One for the Rd is a Steve Allen and Johnny Mercer classic. In Eb, 4/4, sample beats | 1 2 3 4 |. What a great study in the II-V-I chord progression.

|| Eb6 *Ebmaj7 | Eb6 Fm7 Bb7 | Eb6 Bbm7 | Eb9 Bb7#5 |
| Eb6 Ebmaj7 | Eb6 Fm7 Bb7 | Eb6 Bbm7 | Eb9 |
| Ab6 Abmaj | Ab6 Fm7 Bb7 | Eb6 Ebmaj7 | Eb6 |
| G7#5 Cm7b5 | Fm7 Gm7 b5 Ab7 Bb7sus | Eb6 | Am7 D7 ||

*Alt. Db chord voiced with LH root (Db) and RH 4th (G) 7th (C) 3d (F), as a 4-stack (intervals of 4ths)

Before I write out the chorus, would someone proof the tune?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Hope this helps!

Have an arrangement of this for piano - not terribly adventurous, but if anybody is interested e-mail me at jazza942-michaelmusic@yahoo.co.uk and I'll send it along.

I have an nice arrangement for piano and singer which I got from musicnotes.com. They often have several versions of a song so you can pick and choose. I think that this song was Scorch tho' which means you don't get an audio file.
