Dear Ken:

One thing that might help you "hear" the tunes as based upon the same  
changes is to hum or sing "Indiana" while Donna Lee is being played.  
Or play Indiana on your axe while Donna Lee is playing in the  
background. You will then note they match up chord wise, perfectly.

Much the same as Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone and Five  
Feet Two match up.

Steve Barbone
