Thanks Thomas,

Saved me a stack of note crunching.

I have made some corrections seeing as the key of F minor has 4 flats in the key signature (Bb, Eb, Ab and Db) so D flat is the correct chord in the key of F minor rather than C#. The G following it was tricky at first I thought it was Gm7b5 but thanks to some clarification from http://brunojazz.com/vt-SusChords1.htm I changed my mind and decided it was actually a Gm7(11) chord. The G# I changed to Ab as it is the dominant (5 chord) of the DbMaj7 chord. The Db Bb Eb Ab7 is a classic 1, 6, 2, 5 progression.

The Em7 and F# joining chords (just before the next sections) are correct as they are tritone substitutions - good work there... very impressed!

Forgive all the corrections I am a music teacher and just can't help myself!

Great work and thanks again,

Peter Young.
