August Recording Challenge 83 - 🎩Jazz👠

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello Everyone,

The theme for the Recording Challenge for August 2020 is 🎩"Jazz" 👠and comes from Skip Russel

This is what Skip said "For this months guitar recording challenge, I suggest recording a Jazz Standard.  There are thousands of standards to choose from.  Pick up a Real Book or Fake Book, or look in  the Learn & Master Guitar course chapter on Jazz.  In addition, this month Steve is launching the Jazz Standard Academy, it would be great for all of us enrolled to submit a recording of a standard we are working on."

Here is a list of Jazz Standards from Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_jazz_standards however I am not strict so you can post anything which loosely fits the category or mentions Jazz.

1. Fretless playing "Spirit Song"

2. Skip Russel playing "All of Me"

3. Wim VD1 playing “Autumn Leaves“

Here is a live song from a teacher's concert at my wife's music school. My wife played the piano, the other piano teacher played the drums and I was a guest that evening, playing a Burny jazz archtop guitar. The song is called Spirit Song.

Having been picked to choose this months recording challenge theme, I thought I would get going on a Jazz Standard.  This is All of Me, straight out of the Real Book.  I know we are going to study this one for the Jazz Standards Academy course, so I thought I would try it on my own first, and see the difference after Steve presents this in class.

Thanks for any comments.

What a nice Jazz trio, @Fretless

Like @Eracer_Team-DougH said, it's great that you can enjoy making music together.

Well played,

Wim.

Good playing, @Skip Russell.

You jazz cats are being spoiled by Steve with a new Jazz Standards course! Enjoy it.

Perfect timing. I am right now in session 7 "Jazz" of the fingerstyle course, so that fits perfectly with the challenge of the month 😀.

This is a walking bass style arrangement of the jazz standard Autumn Leaves.

Wim.

Awesome Wim! Perfectly played. Loved it. I need to get back into the LMG Fingerstyle  lessons. I got stalled out mid session 2....still living with my flailing fingers style.

Thanks, Greg. Of all the courses I have done so far, I like the LMG Fingerstyle course the most. 

Wim.
