And the 1st measure of "Ain't Misbehavin' "
Fats like it so much he used it in the 2nd measure too.
Thee's also a way of playing "Caravan" (say in Fm) where the chord on the basic melody is C7 then Dbdim7, but it goes right back to the C7 and does this a few times before the end-of-phrase resolution to the tonic Fm. I think you can hear this on "Chester and Lester" if I recall correctly.
The majority of you are really understanding the purpose of this new "workshop".
I'll just go over it again for emphasis.
The tracks being posted will be just the rhythm section. Bass and drums. You fill in the rest. It can be as simple as laid out in the first post, or as complex as you want to make it. The chord changes are implied by the bass line...but if you have a sub that works...go for it.
You add a rhythm guitar(or piano etc).
You write a repeating melody ( you know...a tune).
You play a little solo.
You come back to the melody.
It's not a jam thread.
It's not an avant garde thread.
It's about writing and performing your own traditional tune ( like AABA or the 32 bar form for example) over the supplied track.
You must incorporate the supplied backing track though...in it's original key center.
It's that simple. And its not a race. Take your time. Create!
Oh ok. Didn’t realize there was a backing track.
Yep. It's right there in the first post.
I just read it and assumed that was his take. Silly me.
after listening to everybody (um almost everybody) i thought i needed to do much better. i didnt though
but this is my only chance to record like this for a week, so at least i wont be posting these daily!
That's because I cunningly labelled it "PMW02 Backing Track". Download it and have another go.

You'll all do for me. Challenge met.
Some really nice themes and ideas too, I wish I'd had some of them myself.
@davidKOS thanks for the theory explanations . I'm sure it's much easier to understand in small doses and applied to just a few chords like this.
As you know, the original was only just over 2 minutes, I added some just in case anybody needed more time to develop their theme.
Very cool tracks by all. Thank you Mr. Bit for the opportunity. Thank you to David and Chris for your additional support and guidance. And finally thank you Mr. Jass Jassington for not giving me the boot.
Nice to see that you're around again.
You can buy your own boots though...
Oh, I have a pair stuck you know where.
Some similar changes are used in the first few bars of Makin' Whoopee also;
so much so that we never played both that and Ain't Misbehavin' in the same set when i was doing the jazz duo thing.
I suppose it wouldn't do to play "Birth of the Blues" in either set, as it's another tune with that chordal movement in the first measure.
This is helping a lot. Thanks David. Now all I need is for my fingers to obey...
I'm getting so frustrated with this I've gone back to editing video for a bit. Eight takes and I f'd it up in the first four bars every time! Unfortunately, you can't make good music if you're losing your temper.
Take your time, don't try to be too fancy, trust your ear.
"Paper Moon" uses the same chords, too. Lots of old Great American Songbook tunes use it.
