Blue Moon

Here are the chord substitutions that I use to play the 1934 Rodgers and Hart standard Blue Moon. I play the tune in a moderate 4/4 tempo. The A section is a good study in standard (I-vi-ii-V) progression substitution. Each box below represents one bar. The chord fingerings I use (in a Standard tuning) are as follows: Gmaj7 = 3x443x; G6 = 3x243x; Am7 = 5x555x; D7b5/G# = 4x453x; Am6 = 5x455x; Em7 = x7578x; Bm7 = 7x777x; Bbm7 = 6x666x; Bb7b5 = 6x675x; Am7b5 = 5x554x; Cm7 = 8x888x; F7b5/B = 7x786x; Bbmaj7 = 6x776x; Bb6 = 6x576x; Dmaj7/A = 55767x; and A7 = 57x65x.
