Well, well, well. You got me!

A Ballad! Really, I mean this not something you always hear me play, but I DIG playing this style from time to time because it opens up so many possibilities of improvising.

Of course the use of space, and what I call flurry of quicker passages, always is a nice contrast to the fast bop I love and play regularly.

I think an accomplished player should be able to burn some space in a ambient way.

SO! Check out what we can do over Body and Soul and get some extra Jazz Guitar Lesson love as I walk you through how to make this song part of your guitar toolkit!

This is a great-fresh look on a classic tune that I know you will dig, AND, you WILL learn how to play on it, not just "read about it!!"

So you know what to do. DIG IT and push play!

Check it out and let me know in the comments.


PS. There is a live demo of this song as well. Enjoy!
