Lesson Info

Chord Melody style guitar playing is playing a solo arrangement of a tune by playing the melody, some supporting bass notes and, or chords all at the same time. In this tutorial I use the old jazz standard "St. Louis Blues" to demonstrate how to create a chord melody style arrangement. We will by breaking it down into a simple melody, and then building it back up into a full solo jazz guitar chord melody arrangement in the jazz guitar style of jazz guitar giant Joe Pass.
