Summertime

Verse 1:

Summertime
And the living is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high

Your daddy's rich
And your mama's good lookin'
So hush little baby now
don't you cry

Verse 2:

One of these mornin's
You're gonna rise up singin'
You're gonna spread your wings
And take to the sky

But til that mornin'
Ain't nothin' can harm you
With your daddy & your mammy
standin' by


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.)
