Christopher will show you a two guitar arrangement of this classic jazz song. Guitar 1 is a rhythm guitar part playing the chord progression. Guitar 2 is a lead guitar part playing the single note melody of the song. Guitar 2 also plays a solo that is based on the melody with embellishments. This is a great opportunity to learn how to use some extended harmony chords in a song setting, how to learn to embellish a melody with some typical lead guitar vocabulary in an early jazz style.

We'll start with the chord progression, then learn how to play the overall song form using the chords. Then we'll learn the melody. We'll also play a solo based on the melody. Finally we'll put it all together for complete play alongs with the chords and the melody as well as breaking out each part for play alongs.

We'll play this song in the key of F major, in 2/4 time signature at a tempo of 130 BPM for a quarter note, or 260 BPM for a half note.
