Chords for Floatin Down to Cotton Town

Postby Pickin Palmer » Mon Jun 05, 2017 8:37 am

Now that I know you are still "lurking" in this ChetBored, LMark... Give me a hand in finding this strange chord in Chet's "Floatin Down to Cotton Town."

It's the one that goes with the Eb melody note:

A, B, E6, A
(right here is that chord) - the melody note is an Eb Actually, there is a "lil" clash of the musicians in that spot (10.94 secs) on the recording that makes it very difficult to hear the root bass note, or other notes in their choice of chord...

HELP!!!

Can you snag it from Richard Alcoy? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvONum1M9lM

Thanks for finding those, Mark... however, know the melody notes - I need the chord that Paulo/Chet is playing at :19 secs into his video? Paulo, what chord did you plug into Band-in-da-Box?

I feel an A7dim, I could be wrong but I feel this;
And it's the deal I put in a band box! I hope it was useful.
This song represents for me one of the most important of Chet, because here with her Gretsch is really expressed by God. Chet makes me come to paradise !!!!!

Oh my goodness, Lmark....what are all those little dots - with the tail thingys??? :)

Hey, Paulo - THAT'S IT.. A root dim kord... YES.. It all works, now. THANKS I don't think I've ever played a tune with that combo in it...

Now, I've got to figure out what to set the delay at... (I think it's one kick back - right?)
