Man-o-man. Wait let me say it again!! Man-o-MAN. John Coltrane - Mr. P.C. What a gift he gave all of us! Why? Because the harmony here.

While seemingly simple, it gives us a universe to solo on. So much so, I almost considered a PART II to this lesson. Mr. P.C. - Guitar Lesson PART II.x!!

And, this lesson on Mr. P.C. is one I am particularly proud of because it ties in my own learning as a young jazz player.

And those learnings are still ones I hold dear to my heart - even today.

SO! Check out what we can do over Mr. P.C and get some extra 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.
