    Default Let's Stay Together - Al Green

    Someone had requested this tune a while back. I am requesting feedback on the first and second endings: do you think the chords are Dm9 both bars, D9 both bars, or does it go from Dm9 to D9? I have never been able to hear those chords.

    Isn't it Gmin7 in the 5th bar of the B section... As the same for the 5th bar of the ending as well...

    I'm hearing it as Bb. Plain old vanilla IV chord

    Stephen is right: the 5th bar of the B section as well as the coda should be G-7.

    I also hear Db or Db^7 in the 7th bar of the A section.
    The D9 sounds right at the end of the A section. (the bass player plays a high F#).

    Also, since the 1st and 2nd ending are the same you could just skip them and save a line.

    I hear the Db and D9 (thank you). I am still hearing Bb after listening to the song again, not Gm7. The bassist is hitting Bb. Massimo can you make the changes? The app shuts down on me when I try to save the changes I am trying to make. Thx.

    I think you're talking about the 5th bar of A which you correctly have as Bb while the 5th bar of B clearly is G-7 while you wrote A-7.
    Here's the fix.

    I see this forum is lacking one of my favorite songs. So here it is. I give you "Let's Stay Together." Feel free to comment, critique, and edit the chart.

    Oh jeez. I didn't find this post before I posted another let's stay together chart in this forum. Well looking at both of yours, it looks like we're all on the same page, except for a few things. Take a look
