Folks, Here's a skeletal chord string for Gershwin' (?) 'S'Wonderful'. I winnowed and reduced it from a transcription of Barney Kessel's backup to a Julie London version. It's keyed for guitar of course. I'm lazy and will include only brief A and B lines and let ya'll take it from there. Chas.

Ama7, Bbdim, Bm9sus, E7-6, E7#5, Ama7... ( F9, E9, Eb9 )

Ama7, Bbdim, Bm9sus, E7-6, A6...

Ab7#5, Db, Eb9, Ab7#5, Db6, Eb9, Ab7#5...

Db9,... F#7-9, B9, E7b9.

Ama7, F#7-#9, F#7, Bm7, E7-6, E7-6-9, A.. (done)

OK folks, there's the bare bones of this jazzy version. I apologise for the lack bar notation but let your ear guide you for meter & time signature etc. Goodluck and have fun with this cute baby, Chas
