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


This song is Avalon, by the great Al Jolson, written in 1920. Benny Goodman had a hit with it and so did Les Paul and Chet Atkins. It is a 32 bar form. Again, I will start with the straight melody, for the 2nd chorus I am going to add some rhythmic variation, on the 3rd chorus I am going to add some bends and for the 4th chorus I will add some slides.
