Don't Know Why Tab

   
saw this tab in TheTabWorld.com and decided to put it in here.

don't Know Why

performed by Norah Jones on her albums "First
Sessions", "Come Away With Me"
composed by Jesse Harris

transcribed by Michael Blake (All work his own).


The guitar part is played on nylon strings.  Emphasis
is on the descending chromatic line from the A down to
the D. The M7 D7 6 and 9 chords highlight this line,
as well as the Eb Major to Eb minor change in the
second bar.

The song is in the form AABABAA with a piano solo on
the second to last A section.
