Don't Get Around Much Anymore

Here are the chord substitutions that I use to play the 1942 Duke Ellington standard Don't Get Around Much Anymore. The A section of the song is creatively written around a ragtime progression. In my arrangement, the opening progression has a great ascending chromatic bass line. I play the tune in a moderate 4/4 tempo in the key of "E". Each box below represents one bar. The chord fingerings I use (in a Standard tuning) are as follows: Emaj7 = 022444; F#m7 = 242222; Go7 = 3x232x; Emaj7/G# = 4x244x; C#7 = x4342x; F#7 = 242322; B7 = x21202; Bm7 = 7x7777; E7/A# = 6x675x; Amaj7 = 5x665x; A#o7 = 6x565x; G#m7 = 4x4444; C#7/G = 3x342x; and B7/F = 1x120x. For variation, try connecting the "EM7/G#" and the "C#7" chords in the second and third bars of the A section with an "E7-D#7-D7-C#7" walk down.
