chords

2      x,x,8,6,6,6
3      x,x,9,8,9,7 

(note: since i'm typing from memory 3 may be wrong. I'll send
update if it is.)

this song is very swing oriented so remember that in your strumming
pattern. the verse part is VERY interesting since there *almost*
seems to be no pattern so if you want the easier way see the note
in "* *"(actually the easy pattern might be right cause sometimes my
ears are OVER hearing the part and will here things that are note there
so if you are confused use that part.) just listen to the intro and for\
the first part you will hear the pattern for 1 2. (actually it is like
1 1 1 2) that is the universal pattern for the song 'cept the chorus.
the pattern for 1 3 2 is a little hard to hear but you can hear the 1
pattern and then the saxes over power the guitar. Follow the saxes for
3 & 2. (1 1 3 2) Again this goes for the whole song except the chorus.
When you play try not to listen to anything else . Just focus on playing
the right measure and only that and it will fit together nicely, it looks
more confusing than it is due to break offs in the text.

pattern for strumming chord 1 (except chorus)
dotted 8th, 16th, 16th, dotted 8th  

intro - 1  2    1   3 2
