Chord changes for Miles Davis' Half Nelson. This progression is based on the progression used in Tadd Dameron's "Lady Bird". It differs from "Lady Bird" in bars 7 and 8 where the harmonic tempo is doubled and a chromatic substitution is inserted and in bars 15 and 16 where a different turnaround is employed.
