(I don't remember who of us discovered that dot feature; it wasn't me.) You do have to put up with the initial error message at the top, but that's easily dispensed with by tapping "OK" during the countdown.

    Oh, I get it now.

    I'm a pianist, so I use only the bass and drums as backing tracks, omitting the piano and guitar.

    Thanks for clarifying the dot, guys.

    Cheers,
    Jer

    Wow.

    Thank you.

    Thanks, Jack.

    I used to download backing tracks from Ralph Blatt and Jamey Aebersold. But since discovering iReal Pro I've been transferring all my tracks to it. It's not as lifelike as the others, naturally, but I like its flexibility.

    And since I hope people are focussing on my piano playing rather than on the backing tracks, the iReal Pro tracks work just fine for me.

    I'll keep updating the Playlist as I add more tunes, going through Sandbox to transfer the Playlist from my laptop to my iPod.

    Cheers,
    Jer

    And here's my version (with some colorful chord voicings). One might take issue with the first bar of the [C] section, but I've found this progression to be very helpful to singers who have trouble recovering from the Bridge.

    Thank you, Jack.

    Is "90" how many for which I have "Rev JE" after the name? I never counted them.

    Cheers,

    Dale,

    Good chart.

    I think 7 bars before the end you meant not E9 but E7b9, as the melody is on F natural.

    Default Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most (C) 2

    Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most (C)2 - Tommy Wolf-Fran Landesman

    This is simplified from Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most (C). The assumption is that, at most, only root, 3rd, and 7th of each chord get played. That keeps us from interfering with all the demolished 5ths, 9ths, etc etc.

    Sorry, it's too simplified. There are chords in the song that require a fifth or flatted fifth, particularly when the the melody is the fifth.

    And I would like to add another possibility for that. I have switched it over to 6/8. Actually really enjoy it there it gives it a little job that it’s always seemed lacking to me. Unfortunately IRP does not handle 6/8 very elegantly so you have to use your imagination a bit, but the feeling is there. Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most 1 - Tommy Wolf

    See if 3/2 feels more to your liking:

    That works perfectly, Bob.

    However, iReal Pro doesn't treat 3/2 as 3/2, with three beats to the bar. It treats it as 6/4, with two groups of three beats each to the bar, which is why it works in your version.

    So for notation, it's more accurate to use 6/4.

    Cheers,
    Jer
