As a follow up to the Giant Steps thread here is a tune written a few years ago in which I use the same harmonic concept (3 major chords and their dominants separated by major thirds).  Including a short intro and coda the form is quite simple:  one cycle in G, modulate to B and then Eb.  Each cycle takes four bars  so coupled with a blues/ballard line we get a 12 bar Different Shade of Blue.   Joe

ps. Corrected 7/12/1
