The Left Banke chords for Pretty ballerina

Guitar chords with lyrics

This, the Left Banke's followup to 'Walk Away Renee', reached #15 in early
1967.  The melody, with elements of the Lydian (raised fourth) and Mixolydian
(flatted seventh) modes, attracted the attention of Leonard Bernstein, who
analyzed it on his 'Anatomy of Pop' TV special around that time.

                           "Pretty Ballerina"
                            (Michael Brown)
