Hoagy Carmichael – I Get Along Without You Very Well (Chords)

What a great song this is. I love the half-hearted pretence of, “Oh, I’m totally fine with being dumped.” And the music reflects that so well. It does its best to avoid minor-key gloominess but can’t raise the tempo above a crawl and is drenched in melancholy, ambiguous chords.

The song has been sung by all the greats including Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Chet Baker and Nina Simone. But I’ve written up Blue Dean Carcione’s excellent banjolele version.

Suggested Strumming

I’d recommend following Dean and just doing simple down strums all the way though.

Here’s the little fingerpicked intro:
