Doctor Wu

Here is our "Unplugged" arrangement of Steely Dan's 1974 classic Doctor Wu from their "Katy Lied" album. Our unique "Unplugged" arrangements are created for one acoustic guitar and one voice. The song is played in a moderate 4/4 time. The original is essentially a piano tune. I added standard tuning jazz substitutions and changed the key from G to E. You can vamp on the C#m7 chord until you're ready to start. The chord fingerings I use are shown below followed by the A and B sections as well as the Outro chord progressions.
