Summertime



My arrangement:

  Intro:       prog-1
  Verse-1:     prog-1
               prog-2
               prog-1b
               prog-3
  Verse-2:     (same as Verse-1, except use chords from 2nd-half of
               prog-3 instead of chords from prog-1)
  Solo:
  Verse-1:
  Ending:      Repeat last line with prog-3 again, then
               repeat last line with prog-3b, very slowly.
               (It's nice to add a descending scale between the
               F9+6 & E7+5 chords.  Try an Fmaj scale from middle-F,
               and ending on the low-E.)
