    Sleepwalk.....

    One of the reasons the song is so popular is that it is so simple. Catchy melody over a basic chord change.
    I listened to Danny Gatton's version. I love his playing, but..........
    I can't imagine what the response would be to a similar request regarding,
    " Walk Don't Run ".

    Larry Carlton has a nice version of this song as well. It's on his album called "Sleepwalk".

    Try these:

    I play this song every week. Part of the fun is looking for new ways to play through these changes. Here are a few to try: (please note I know nothing about the names of chords...one of the joys of being self taught to fake jazz...so for the chords I don't know the name of, I'll do a little chord diagram)

    Cmaj7 Amin7 G#13 Bdim Ddim Bdim G#dim
    // // // / / / /


    Cmaj7 Amin7 Amin7 Dmin7 Dmin7
    // (5x5557) (5x5555) (10|x|10|10|10|12) (10|x|10|10|10|10)
    / / / /

    Ddim(?)
    (9|x|9|10|9|11)
    //


    or after the Amin7:

    Dmin7 Ddim(?) Ddim(?) Edim
    (10|x|10|10|10|12) (x|x|9|10|9|10) (x|x|9|10|9|12)
    // // / /

    or after Amin7:

    D13 DflatSomethingorother
    (9|x|9|10|12|12)
    // //

    or after Amin7

    (x|5|3|5|5|5) (x|4|3|4|4|4) (x|4|3|4|4|5) (x|3|2|2|3|3)
    // / /

    going to the bridge

    Cmaj7 (x|x|8|9|9|8)(x|8|10|9|10|10)(x|x|15|14|13|12)(x|x|15|14|13|10)
    // // / /

    (x|x|7|7|8|8) (x|8|8|8|9|x) (x|8|9|8|11|x) (x|8|9|8|9|x) C
    / // / /

    or for the bridgs also try Fmaj7 to Fmaj/min7...

    I wish I knew chord names. If there are any real jazz guys hwo can name my chords, it would be awesome.

    If anyone wants more ideas, let me know and I'll post some more.
