I've been playing Ted's sheet of harmonizations of the 1st phrase of "There Will Never Be Another You" and I had a few questions I hope the folks out in cyberspace could help me with.

Is there any "reason" for the chords Ted chose to put above the descending diatonic bass line, other than good taste and voice leading? I love the choices, I'm just wondering why he chose them. I know they're not chord scales...

Also, "2 to 1 Harmonic rhythm." Does that mean two beats for every box?

Thanks!

Hi,
I love this page
At the top of the page Ted wrote Descending Diatonic stepwise Bass, the bass note and the melody seem to be the prime determinant in the voicing.
2 : 1 Harmonic Rhythm  refers to two melody notes per chord (hence the X's)
Hope that helps
