Baby Steps

Opened my jazz standards "real book" and decided to try my hand(s) at "All of You" by Cole Porter.

I attempted to use the simple method of playing the root and either the 3rd or 7th in my left hand, with the melody in the right hand (with the 3rd or 7th, depending on what I left out of the left hand). That's kind of confusing, but hopefully it will become easier. I think I need to play the melody an octave higher so I can put the other notes in the right hand, but it sounds weird to play it up that high.

I'm also wondering how long it takes for this to become intuitive. I guess I'll be finding out.
