My One and Only Love Tutorial
My One & Only Love is a jazz ballad written by Guy Wood. The tune follows a 32 measure AABA form and is usually played in the key of C major. The A section is very busy melodically with lots going on and very few sustained notes or rests.
The slash chords in the A section look quite intimidating but in fact they are quite straight forward once you understand what is being implied. Slash chords are used to imply that a specific bass note must be played.
Moving onto the B section, the tune is a lot calmer with much more space which offers a nice contrast to the melodically busy A section.
