There Will Never Be Another You - Guitar lesson

There will never be another you - Guitar chord study"There Will Never Be Another You" is a popular song by Harry Warren (music) and Mack Gordon (lyrics). It is one of the most known jazz standards and an indispensable study for any jazz guitarist. This jazz guitar comping lesson provides you different chord voicings (drop 2, inverted, rootless and extended chords) on the top four strings of the guitar to comp over this jazz tune. By the way, it will also give you some new ideas to support harmonically a soloist. Indeed, you may even try to apply these chord voicings to the tunes you are used to playing.

There will never be another you - Chord changes

The chord progression of this lesson is based on the real book version (which is notorious for having mistakes) but with some little modifications.

  • Bar 10 and 26 : Real book says F-7b5 and Bb7. In this lesson these two chords are replaced by Db7#11.

The last 5 bars have so many changes on different recordings that it’s hard to say what the right chord progression is.

  • Bar 28 : G-7 and C7 have been replaced by F7 and Gbdim7.
  • Bar 29 : Ebmaj7 has been replaced by G-7. It is a common substitution which consists of replacing the Imaj7 by the IIIm7.
  • Bar 30 : G7 has been substituted by Gm7.​

There will never be another you - Chord study

There are many ways and to develop and embellish a chord progression. For example, by adding extensions to a chord, by replacing a chord by another one, by using drop 2 chords and inversions. To make this lesson clearer, the rhythm has been voluntarily simplified and some chord names (or symbols) do not always correspond to the real name of the used voicings. They are detailed a bit further in this post.
