    Any chance you can put up an image of the music (or write it in powertab and put it up) ?... I don't have the Leavitt books anymore.

    What exactly do you want to analyze? Do you want to know the names of each chord and how they relate to the others?

    As an example, the first chord is C Major, followed by E7... E7 does not belong to the tonality of C Major, but is the V chord in A minor, the third chord in this first measure (it could also be a C6 chord, but with the E7 , A minor is a more logical choice)... The next chord is just another inversion of A minor... So why the E7??? To introduce the key of A minor, to support the idea of a tonality change (modulation)

    Is that what you need? If yes, you might want to play the first etudes again (from the very beginning of the book), and analyze the first chord shapes you encounter...That will help you I'm sure !!!!

    Let me know what you think,

    Shred
