Lesson notes

If you’re looking for a jazz standard that will not only be a familiar and pleasant tune, but also one that will give you a slight challenge without going too far on the jazz theory, then this is the lesson for you.

Take The "A" Train is a classic jazz tune that has been played by virtually every famous jazz musician, and for good reason. Utilizing some interesting chord progressions as well as a melody that accents an unusual rhythmic pattern, there is a lot to learn whether you’re a jazz novice or a seasoned player.
