Hello,

I have transcribed Charlie Parker's solo for "Chi Chi". Now, I feel I need to know the changes in order to analyse it
but don't feel ready to figure them out myself.

Does anyone know where I can find chord progressions for Charlie Parker tunes, online? (Or, could someone who has it post it here?)

The song is "Chi Chi (Alt take 2)", from the album "Now's The Time".

Thanks.

well I did know that such thing existed,
I've seen quite a few different "versions" of the blues.
don't know which one would be the regular though

here's one I have but I don't think it matches

I7 | IV7 | I7 | v-7 I7 |
IV7 | #iv˚ | I7 | iii-7(b5) VI7alt |
ii-7 | V7alt | I7 VI7alt | ii-7 V7alt |

can you write me down which changes you'd use?
thanks a lot

understood.
then when it comes to analysing Charlie's sax solo, I suppose he's playing over either a very basic 12 bar blues, or making up his own changes free from the rhythm section? could be?
