I've been working on soloing over After You've Gone this week and have been trying to simplify the changes using mainly my ear to tell me what I can play or miss out.
The changes in the last 16 bars are pretty relentless and I'm certainly not up to playing over them as written but I've got it down to this as an exercise in getting it as simple as possible:
G/ G /Em/Em
G/ G / D7/ D7
G/ G / G/ G
I was wondering what others thought of this, whether I'm doing what most of you are doing or have I missed too many chords out. You may have some great advice or ideas that I have overlooked. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I do have some understanding of harmony but sometimes its not obvious to me what the transition (none essential) chords and what the destination chords are.
