Jazz Lines (Bossa #1)


Today we are looking at a Charlie Parker style approach to 12 bars of the blues. We are sticking to the more simplistic edge of his playing today but in the future ill be adding some of his more wild lines.

In the Video I will play through the melody slowly for you and then a bit quicker with a backing track.

The fingerings as tabbed out are not the most economical for this melody. I did this as an added technical workout though, so pay attention to the video and how I have approached the wide leaps between some of the notes.
