My teacher presented me with a keyboard piece in my lesson - Let there be Love - and I had to fill in the chords.  What fun!  Can anyone recommend a book of intermediate keyboard music that has in songs from the 30s or 40s - songs like It Had to be You, The Very Thought of You etc.  I love that era of song music wub.png and I’ve really enjoyed filling in the chords.

This series of books is very good. Great selection.

We have the twenties, thirties and forties volumes. OH started playing from them as an intermediate pianist and still plays from them today, though these days he does more with them than he did back then.
