Watch the April Showers Melody online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from 1-2-3 Jazz Guitar


The next tune is April Showers, written in 1922 and covered by greats such as Al Jolson, Cab Callaway, Judy Garland and many others. I will start with the straight melody, which is most important. In the 2nd chorus I add some rhythmic variation to jazz up the melody a bit. The 3rd chorus I will add some bends and in the 4th chorus I will add some vibrato.
