The jazz standard “I Love You”

The jazz standard "I Love You"
I’d like to look at a standard now, Cole Porter’s “I Love You”. I’m, first of all, just going to play the tune in root position. I’m not really interested in the details of how I play it in root position, because later on we are going to be playing it in voiced position with a playalong, but I want to analyse the tune first. OK, here’s the tune.

Before analysing the jazz standard “I Love You”, I play the tune in root position.

You can download the chart for “I Love You” in PDF format at the bottom of this step.
