  • Chord voicing choice

    F/A Bb9 Em/B Cdim F/C Bdim C

    OK too.

    By the way I am giving chords for the whole phrase, from You took to all of me.

    The reason is that any reharmonisation has to make sense as a phrase and that pretty much means that you need to complete the phrase in the style of the different options. It is an eight bar phrase moving from four and hitting one on the seventh bar. I leave the turnaround, bars seven and eight, blank.

    It is not very instructive to look at chord substitutions in isolation as they have to make sense with a phrase as a whole in my opinion.

    In other tunes the options I offered might not sound good with the melody. That is why I sang through them to check that I at enjoyed the results, you will need to do this with each tune so that the chords don't take you away from the melody in a way which undermines the integrity of the tune.

    Singing through them also really helps you FEEL the musical effect of your choices. Otherwise it is just maths and no fun.
