    Default If You Love Me by Gardot, Carvalho, Aderne

    Hi Timothy,

    "If You Love Me" is a slow ballad by Melody Gardot, Dadi Carvalho, and Pierre Aderne. It has a straightforward 32-bar AABA structure and is built around a I-vi-ii-V progression. When I first heard it this afternoon, it reminded me of many 1950s teenage love ballads (I was there, so I ought to know) that were popular then.

    The harmony is simple, and I kept it that way in the chord chart. Note that in measure 6 (and the other two similar instances), I placed the Ab7 chord on the third beat; I'm not sure if it was on the third or fourth beat in the recording but either way, it's a matter of taste.

    I did not include the introduction, but I did include the short tag at the end. I hope this arrangement works for you.
