Watch the Jazz Night: Part 1 online guitar lesson by Mimi Fox from Graduated Solos

For this melody I did something different. I have outlined the chords of the entire piece using arpeggios (a great practice tool which is the basis of my book, Guitar Arpeggio Studies on Jazz Standards) using quarter notes. If you use this technique whenever you are learning a new piece of music, you will be amazed at how much faster you can memorize a new song. Additionally, you will see how much better your lines will sound when you know the underlying harmonic structure of the tune.
