“Solar” is a musical composition attributed to Miles Davis on the studio album Walkin’, considered a modern jazz standard. A controversy also exists over authorship of this composition and one current consensus holds that Davis’ “Solar” is essentially an earlier song, “Sonny” (or “Sunny”?), written by Chuck Wayne.

The commonly accepted chord structure for this piece is:

A CmMaj7 Cm7 or Gm7 Gm7 / C7
FMaj7 Fm7 Bb7
EbMaj7 Ebm7 / Ab7 DbMaj7 Dm7b5 / G7
