Flat Foot Floogie (with the floy floy (naturally))

edited March 2008 in Repertoire Posts: 11

I've been looking high and low in books fake and real for this tune. I've checked all the links i could find, and it's not yet in either of the django wiki books. I'm really looking for some simple chords at this point, I can do most of the basic versions in the gypsy rhythm book. Naturally, the more info i can get about this favorite song o' mine the better.

Supposedly it's in the real books : "The Real Little Ultimate Fake Book-3rd Edition" and "The most amazing colossal ultimate selection"

    It's real simple...I believe the A part is just I vi ii V. The bridge is the same as Honeysuckle rose.

    Wow, thanks for the fast response. Anyways, I've been plugging in the progression into band in a box and i can't get it to sound right. I've been using the key of Fmaj. (I vi ii V-> F Dm Gm C) but I don't know how many measures of each chord and their order (or it just a straightforward I vi ii V order) .

    is it something like:
    |F |Dm| flatfoot floogie with the floy floy
    |F |Gm| flatfoot floogie with the floy floy
    |F |Dm| flatfoot floogie with the floy floy
    |C|C| floy doy floy doy ....

    then bridge(which sounds fine)

    Well hopefully some of my confusion hasn't spread, thanks for the help

    This is what it sounds like to me, just like MH's ...

    [F] Flatfoot [Dm] floogie with the [Gm] floy [C7] floy

    Chords get two beats each (two chords per measure in 4/4). Basically the Rhythm Changes.

    Fun tune!

    Here's a lead'll have to do some adjusting, though.
