    Recently, my stereo died, and I'm dependant upon my computer speakers to learn and chart songs for my band. Very bad speakers, making this very difficult.

    Unfortunately, I'm running into a real problem with "At Last."

    Assuming the song is in AABA form, (or, we can call it AABC if you think the ending is significantly different enough to warrant), I'm having some real trouble with the last 2 bars of the first two A sections, and some definite problems with the B section.

    While the song, to me, seems clearly built off of I-vi-ii-V7, in F Major, I'm hearing slash chords for the last two bars of each A section, and that's really throwing me off because I'm can't hear the bass through my speakers.

    Does anyone have the changes for this tune?

    (I guess that was a long, round-a-bout way of asking for that).

    Thank you.
