Solar - it is just a song you can not forget because of all the harmonic detail, the easy 12 bar format and of course the Miles' melody.

Where to begin? I think for me it is the modal underpinnings that make this a winner for me.

However, I cannot go without saying that I just dig how the simple melody and format allow you to play in a straightforward manner and "free" which I really think was one the most important cornerstones of Miles Davis' songs.


SO! Check out what we can do over Solar 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!
