Lesson notes

This famous Duke Ellington song is a great way to get your feet wet in the jazz genre. Ultimately, it’s a pretty fast tempo, however most of the notes are held fairly long which allows you to play at a quick tempo but without having to “shred” a bunch of notes. This will allow you to concentrate on the melody and harmony, both of which you’ll learn in this in-depth lesson.
