Watch the Moon River 2a online guitar lesson by Robert Conti from Jazz Master
Although you may be anxious to play the arrangements, please read all of the guidelines presented throughout the volume, as they will make the tunes much easier to play and comprehend. In my observation, nearly every guitarist will choose to perform these tunes in a rubato style. Therefore, to facilitate the learning process I took certain liberties in removing many dotted notes, ties, rest marks and so on to make the melody easier to read and avoid notation that may be too complex for some players. Very often, the vocal version of a popular song does not agree with the notation in the written sheet music. In those instances, I opted to present the melody line as it is generally played by the majority of musicians, and commonly recognized by the listener. In some arrangements, I also included some of my stylistic trademarks, fills and embellishments to the melody line.
