Here's the CORRECT VERSION OF SUMMERTIME by George Gershwin. Whoever had the audacity to rate this version three stars was simply not talented enough to play the chords. This version (Ver.2) has the correct upper-extensions. Summertime should be played as such, or it loses its dramatic value (with all its leading tones and what not). This isn't hard to play at all. In fact, the tab's writer knew there'd be morons who couldn't play it, so he kindly provided a simplified version. I wouldn't exactly agree with doing such a thing, but hey, whatever helps you jackoffs. Just kidding. But seriously, if you want to play Summertime right, here are the correct chords.
