I have been working on this for a while. This is the Am version of the 2 simplified arrangements that are posted on the website. I like the use of the open E and A strings in the bass and I did not have to simplify it too much more. I went around twice and ended on an Am6/9 chord. Thanks to Paul for his work in making these so accessible. It would be tough for me to work off Ted's original chord grids.

Hi Dave,
Thanks, it's encouraging that you took the time to comment. I chose this arrangement because it is relatively straightforward. Guitar is a kind of "fantasy" Thinline Nocaster, butterscotch blond with a neck like a baseball bat. I put it together from Warmoth parts.

Regards,

John

Hah! With my eyes on that neck I didn't even notice it was a thinline.

Yes, it's flame maple. It started out satin but I made a mistake and had to refinish it and it's now a bit glossier than I expected, I may have over-polished it. Profile is probably a little fatter than I was expecting, but I wanted it to be period correct, so you live and learn.

Well it looks nice for sure. I'm hoping to find a fat neck tele to try out in person sometime.

Thanks. I had a Fender American Standard Tele a few years ago and the neck on it was noticeably more chunky than, for example, an equivalent Strat. But not as fat as this one.

Hey Paul, just noticed a typo, the last grid on the first line should be named Bb9(b5).

Thanks Dave.  I'll put that on my to-do list to fix and re-post.
I'm thinking that I should probably do a full notation of this one, rather than just the melody with grids.
