Today we are going to learn how to play "Breezin'" as recorded by Gabor Szabo and Bobby Womack in 1971. This is a Jazz instrumental tune featuring some very melodic lead guitar and easy-grooving rhythm guitar over a simple two chord progression. It's ALL about the melodies, pocket and light hearted feel in what may be the very first smooth-jazz tune!

In this tutorial we will talk about tone and gear, well learn the the melody, the guitar solo, the ending melody the outro and rhythm guitar. The song is in D Major, 4/4 time with a quarter note of approximately 88 BPM, so let’s get started!
