Man O MAN ALIVE you know it is speed when Cherokee is the tune being called.

Ray Noble had great ideas with this song especially getting that wonderful melody and spacing the rhythm with the blistering tempo this tune is usually played at.

And this song can teach us so much about bebop and of course not only bebop but also how to get inside some altered dominate sounds via melodic minor/lydian b7 rocket ship.

SO! Check out what we can do over Cherokee 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!
