The form is also very simple. It's a 16 bar progression that repeats twice. There's no bridge or chorus, there's just one section, which we'll call a verse and it repeats. Gershwin's intention was to write a simple blues tune as a setting for his musical story.
As we'll see the melody is also very simple, often relying on the simple minor pentatonic scale. But, the extended harmony chords that Gershwin wrote combined with the simple melody gives the tune a very powerful, haunting, melancholy sound. We'll play the chords along with the backing track in order to get a sense of the song form. This is a great way to get an overall sense of a song before you ramp up to learning the melody and more advanced ways to play it.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
