A while back my teacher and I made chord charts for two old Cab Calloway big band numbers. "A Chicken Ain't Nuthin But A Bird" and "Poppas In Bed With His Britches On". We charted both songs like this: Eb/// Bb/// Eb/// Bb/// Ab/// Db/// Eb/// Eb/// He sez "What key?" and I sez "Ab" and he sez "Right". I sez, "it's like a I, IV, ii, V in Ab", and he sez, "Right, and it starts on the V". And I sez, "Right". Now I live in a different town and I show these charts to my new teacher who is a six string player and when he and I start jamming to the recording we find out that the ii chord sounds awful as a Bbm and sounds hep as a Major. It's like that in both songs. The ii chord only sounds right as a Major. Whassup wit dat. I thought the ii had to be minor.
