    Bob,

    The title is "Wow." It's a contrafact on the tune "Exactly Like You."

    Cheers,

    You'd think that, except the charted changes don't match.
    I looked for a track by Gee... No joy.

    Bob,

    It's true that the changes don't match exactly, especially in the bridge, but it's what Gee claims for this tune.

    Here's the link to Gee's pages: https://jazzleadsheets.com/wow.html

    And a group playing it on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgxPxEvCavo

    Cheers,
    Jer

    Nah. You don't want to become as obsessive-compulsive as I am.

    Hey, Bob, you have a tenth anniversary on this site coming up in a few months ...

    Thanks Jer,

    I think iReal pro is the most significant advance in music education in my lifetime. I'm really happy I am able to lend my support. Everywhere in the world that there is Internet, there are musicians using iRp. The past decade has certainly gone by in a flash! Your contributions (along with other's) to our forums are helping build a legacy for the future.

    Thank You
    )BOB
