    Hi folks,

    I have the idea of taking some pop songs and trying to reharmonise the chord progression in Band in a Box. I would be playing the lead guitar lines myself whilst BIAB would be providing the backing.

    My problem is that I can never find interesting substitutions or substitutions that sound good! I have Handbook of Chord Substitutions by Andy Laverne and it's good, but I have problems coming up with ideas on my own.

    I'm going to reharmonize Beth by Kiss and here are a few chords from the verse:

    |C / / Dm/C / / | Cmaj7 C/B Am G | F / / G/F / / | C/E / / Esus E7 |

    Would anyone have any ideas as to what I can do with these?

    Also, kind of related to this subject, would anyone have the link to Sandemose's website? I'm pretty sure he had lots of pdf files of his own arrangement of pop songs but I can't find it!
