 Chords to I Know You Know



simple blues scales A and D

Intro G
Verse G C
Pre-Chorus Em D C D
Chorus G C

After trying it once more I think I had the second chorus wrong too.
E5-D5-C5-D5 (aka power chords rooted on the A string, frets 7-5-3-5) sounds better than what I said in my first comment.

For this tab I've just transcribed the chords. Since this is jazz, the
bottomline IS the chords and everything is improvisation from there.
These chords might not be a 100% flawless, so I'd really appreciate some
help and good advice! :D

The main progression is switching between a plain D and a Bbmaj7+5,
which is just Bb and C added to the D major scale. For improvisation,
this is pretty much just a D mixolydian scale. I'll name that part
the Interlude, as the song always returns to that before moving on.
