LEVEL: Intermediate

In this lesson you will learn to play our trio version of “How High the Moon”.

Actually, this musical tune was composed as a ballade, but soon it became a well-known jazz standard in all kind of different styles. Charlie Parker for example used the chord structure for his famous “Ornithology” composition, too.

In this GypsyGuitarAcademy lesson I will cover most parts of our YouTube version including the atypical rhythm guitar, my freely intro, theme, solo and the chord theme.

In addition to that, feel free to check out Django Reinhardts version with the “Jazz Club Myster Hot Band” from 1945!
