In this tutorial we will learn a George and Ira Gershwin song that has become a jazz standard, "They Can't Take That Away From Me". Christopher Schlegel will give you an overview of the song and talk about the tones to start; then examine how to comp the chords followed by comping the song itself. Then we'll look into the melody and soloing, followed by a "melody and soloing" play-along. Christopher finishes things off with a chord melody version.
In this set of lessons I'll be teaching you the great jazz standard "Our Love is Here to Stay", by George and Ira Gershwin. First I'll introduce the song to you, then give an overview. I'll start breaking down the song details with a look at the chord comping rhythm part followed by the rhythm performance. I'll then teach the single note melody and how to embellish it, and conclude with a melody and solo part performance.
