Jazz Standards
« on: December 15, 2010, 12:14:29 pm »
Ok. So as i'm beefing up my chord repertoire i'm setting aside time to really put it to use by learning my first jazz standard songs. Although this might seem like a dumb question, can anyone suggest a good "noob" version of "All The Things You Are" that i can play along with? A version that is straight forward and allow me to identify/practice the chord progression would be preferable? Also any other versions of the most important standards to learn would be cool also. Regards ~ JD

should be simple enough once you get the grips down.

Hey Jim thanks, i've already printed those out. What i was mainly concerned with was what actual version of the song (Mp3 etc.) would be best to play along with. Just seems like there are so many out there as everyone covers these standards and has their own slant on them.

I'm not too sure on a specific recording, but I'd suggest trying one with vocals.  It would probably be easier to know where things are in the song and the recording will probably be more similar to the way it shows up on a standard sheet.  There's an Ella Fitzgerald recording that comes up early in a youtube search that seems relatively simple.  Check what key they do it in though, I don't think it's the same as the lead sheet that I have.

Thanks for the link, the version is great and right after that is a Joe Pass version that will either make you practice for hours or throw your guitar out a window. Luckily, I chose more practice.

Summer time should have made the list but I don't think it made the book.

See if you can find the pdf download of "The real book volume 1" there are many around... and a great thing to do them is to listen to as many versions as you can, they will be all different styles and tempos and keys, but that is how you really start to dig into a tune when you hear the different ways people have performed it!
