    Also, Diana Krall is not the composer

    "I'll String Along With You" is a song with words by Al Dubin and music by Harry Warren. It is from the 1934 film "Twenty Million Sweethearts." The song, with its sweet sentiment, has a standard 32-bar AABA form and is typical 1930s fluff. Harry Warren was a prolific film composer, with songs in over 300 films with such hits as "I Only Have Eyes For You," "We’re in the Money," "Lullaby of Broadway," "September In The Rain," and "There Will Never Be Another You."

    It works well as a medium ballad, with Jazz-Swing Two/Four style at 120 bpm. Note that this chord chart does not correspond to the Diana Krall version, which is a lush, slow ballad.

    Ah, well. Here's Diana's version, as a beautiful, sensual ballad.

    Hi guys--

    I just don't hear this tune as a slow ballad, and my chart reflects that. Differences between Jerry's chart and mine should provide good illustrations for newcomers who write chord charts. Songs at faster tempos often have fewer chord changes because each chord has less time (in the absolute sense) to fill. In Jerry's chart of the Krall version, there is a bunch of chords that fill the first two measures; my chart has but one chord for these two measures. The same goes for the turnaround in the first ending. It's all a matter of solving the basic problem in music: How does one fill time? Another good tidbit can be found in the third and fourth measures: how to get from the tonic to the V of ii? I do it chromatically, Jerry does it I, VIIb7, iii (or V7sus of ii), V of ii. Two different solutions to address the same musical issue.

    I love Diana Krall. I happen to think her version of this tune drags and is overly sentimental. That being said, you are listening to her version on Youtube and not mine!

    Regards,
    Keith

    Keith,

    I wouldn't have thought the tune would work as a ballad.

    But I love what Krall does with it. I'm going to try playing it that way.

    Normally I would use more tritone subs, but I don't hear them in the Krall version.

    Cheers,
    Jer
