Georgia On My Mind


Here are the chord substitutions that I use to play the 1930 Hoagy Carmichael (pictured above) standard Georgia On My Mind. The opening progression is an example of a descending diatonic bass line. I play the tune in a moderate 4/4 tempo in the key of E. Each box below represents one bar. For variation try substituting the "G#7" in bar two of the A section with "D#m7b5-G#7." Also, try subsituting "C#m-C#m/B-A6-Am6" or "C#m-E7/B-A-A#o7" for bars 3 and 4 of the A section. The chord fingerings I use (in a Standard tuning) are as follows: E = 022100; G#7/D# = x64544; C#m = x46654: C#m7/B = 7x9999; F#/A# = 6x467x; Am6 = 5x4555; G#m7 = 4x4444; C#7 = x4342x; F#m7 = 2x2222; B7 = x2120x; C#7b9 = x4343x; B7+ = x2100x; D9/F# = 2x0210; C#m7 = x46454; F#m6 = 2x1222; A7 = 575655; F#7 = 242322; D#7b5 = 5x564x; and Fo7 = 1x010x.
