Play this song with swing 8th notes. Rather that a technical explanation of swing 8th notes, listen to the recording to get the feel of the tune. It's kind of a long..... short ..long..... short ..thing. Listen, you'll get it. The symbol that looks like a greater than sign ( > ) means to accent (give emphasis) to that rhythm.

You will need to learn a new chord for this song. D69/F#. This means that this is a D69 chord, with an F# in the bass. Or at the moment you could just call this chord Bob.

note: The 69 placed next to each other or on top of each other (like below) make not difference in how the chord is played.
