The standard What's New (1939) is analysed according to the method. This AABA-form song is remarkable because all of it's sections are almost the same. The bridge is the same as the other sections except in another key, so the analysis shows it as being the same. Once one of A the sections is learned, only the joins into and out of the bridge are needed to play the song in any key.

Bricks used include: On; Cadence; Launcher, POT.

Joins used include: Half Nelson; Bauble; Bootstrap and Backslider.
