Hi- i'm a new boy 'round here. Be gentle with me.
But does anyone have charts for 'Nature Boy'? I loved the Nat Cole record, and I'd love to get it down on my new Eastman Mando. Beautiful tune and sentiment. and the tune has a great story behind it...
Maybe this has all been said before, but as I said, I'm new in these parts.

Can't direct you to an "arrangement", but a lead sheet with chords & music notation (in Eb- really Cmin)is here:


Enjoy- and share your arrangement with us! http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Thanks John. Some mighty chords in there. As soon as I work out how to get my fingers round them I'll be back to you.
The record I have seems to be in Am, but what the heck.
Great site too- thanks!

Be sure to check out the Grisman version on Dawganova...
it will probably give you some good mando ideas

Great tune. #I use the chords in the chart John Soper linked, with the exception of Measure 7 which I play as an Ab7. # I've recently been fooling around with it in 3/4 time.

It was written in 3/4 but usually played in 4/4 as a bossa. My preference is in Em.
