    My recording of this song; 
    Tip on playing this song; It's all about the rhythm! Listen to the original version on YouTube and the many other recordings by various artists. The melody is actually quite simple, based on the Am Pentatonic Scale, played in the 5th position. Have fun with it!  Neil

  7. A Great Jazz Guitar Trick: Patterns and the Power of Three

    Topic: A Great Jazz Guitar Trick: Patterns and the Power of 3!
    Ready to learn a great jazz guitar trick?
    The ear recognizes patterns - patterns in chords, patterns in notes.  You can use patterns to create incredible sounding progressions just by moving identical chord shapes to different parts of the neck - particularly three frets apart.
    Here's a great lesson on a wonderful concept of patterns and their use in threes.  I know it sounds odd but, trust me, it's a handy tool to use.  With some incredible musical results from just a bit of guitar sleight of hand.
    Here's a simple PDF of some of the concepts we'll be covering...

  12. Using Chord Tones as Seeds for Soloing

    This is the PDF for the Live Lesson by Steve Krenz on August 6th 2019.   Description: Some may think that improvising is pure creativity - a person creating on a blank canvas - which can be quite intimidating. But, often, it's more like combining creative links to make a chain of ideas. These links or idea "seeds" can be built from the chord tones using some simple techniques that we'll be showing tonight. You can start off by using simple tricks around the chord tones to jump start the creativity. It's a great technique.
