Hey friends,

Play "Stand By Me" As a Jazz-Groove OR Bossa Nova Style

Here are a bunch of jazzy chords to spice up this beautiful guitar classic – Stand By Me, along with two rhythms of your choice: One's a jazzy-groovy one, and the other is a bossa nova rhythm. (“Brazilian jazz” as it's often referred to)

1:45 – Version 1: Jazzy-Groovy
5:25 – Version 2: Bossa Nova (Brazilian Jazz)

The chords are loosely based on the chords from this beautiful bossa nova cover by Bruno Camurati:

Bruno Camurati - Stand By Me - Relaxing Bossa Lounge

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see

No I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountains should crumble to the sea

I won't cry, I won't cry, no I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand now, stand by me, stand by me

And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh, stand now by me, stand by me, stand by me

Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me
Oh stand by me, won't you stand by
