Does anyone have a line on a fakebook type lead sheet (meloldy & chords at least) for Sarane's "Cocktail Swing"?

    Thanks, Jack!

    Can you point me to some guide for the chord changes on European sheet music? Is "La" an F chord, or in the first bar, F/A? What about "La+"? I guess I could always follow the bass line and figure out the chords.

    Hi,

    Here is the clue :

    La=A
    Sib=Bb
    Si=B
    Do=C
    Do#=C#
    Ré=D
    Mib=Eb
    Mi=E
    Fa=F
    Fa#=F#
    Sol=G
    Sol#=G#
    La=A

    It is a music sheet for accordion, in this time they used to write La+ or sometimes Lax for an Am chord (La mineur). So be carefull it is not an Am5+.
    Now as it is an accordion music sheet sometimes you have B Ré / B Mi.
    Here B stands for bass so for instance the music begins with Am then Am/D then Am/E.
    The other chords you can guess easily Mi7 = E7 ; Ré+=Dm and so on.
    Best
