Watch the My Romance online guitar lesson by Mimi Fox from Jazz Performance

When taking a standard, it's always important to try and create somethingfresh out of an old chestnut.In this case, instead of playing the song as itwas written in 4/4 time, I put it into 6/8 which gives a nice lilt to thisbeautiful ballad and forces me to play the melody in a different way.Another good thing to do with standards is to explore putting them intodifferent keys.Some keys are especially good for guitar because of openstring availability or harmonics...explore and have fun!
