Video: Stella By Starlight Chord Melody

Here’s a little something I’ve been working on lately – check it out on Youtube here:

It’s a solo jazz guitar arrangement of Stella By Starlight.

Part of the challenge with this tune on solo guitar is the frequent, long melody notes. You need to work quite a bit to ensure that you can maintain interest in a guitar-only version during those long notes.

It’s easy though – if you know the tricks.

Keen on learning how to play this tune on solo guitar? Well, I have some good news for you:

My latest jazz standard lesson series will teach you exactly how to build an arrangement just like what you saw on the above Youtube video, as well as a detailed roadmap over how to improvise over Stella By Starlight – a tune that you’ll inevitably have to face at one point if you want to call yourself a “jazz player”.
