"ALL OF ME": The last section.
Forget about what you see in some Real Books: here are the last 8 measures of the tune:
(we are in the key of C)
| FMaj7 | Fm7 | Em7 | A7 |
| Dm7 | G7 | CMaj7 | % ||
Some common variations are:
| FMaj7 | Fm7 Bb7 | CMaj7 (F7) | (Em7) A7 |
| D7 | Dm7 G7 | CMaj7 | % ||
Note that when using the Bb7 in measure 2 (the bVII7 chord) we can go directly to CMaj7. However, if we only play Fm7, it seems best to go down a 1/2 step into Em7.
The iv minor chord following the IV major chord comes from the parallel key of C minor. It's what they call a "borrowed" chord-- just in case you were wondering...
Order 3 chord studies for "All Of Me" written in diagram form (similar to the ones presented on this website).
Those chord studies include a chord melody arrangement (the melody of the song, harmonized) and 2 comping studies.
Comping studies generally show different inversions, substitutions or variations. They use voicings with or without bass notes, and typically cover different string sets (low, high, etc.)
The studies come in pdf format and will be e-mailed directly to you within 24h.
