Segment, man! Yes Charlie Parker masterfulness all the way.

Charlie had this genius about his melodies that we have never seen again. The just were always spot on and in fact he just played what he was hearing.

That is a real testament to how jazz players should be approaching tunes- by listening to everything goin on around them and playing lines that are in the moment.

Yes - all the theory works as well, but it is supporting part, not a main part of the improvisational aspect of the music.

SO! Check out what we can do over Segment 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!
