SBTD22-05: Lullaby of Birdland
In this lesson we will learn a famous jazz standard written by a great jazz pianist, George Shearing. We will treat each 'A' section differently (3 in total) so that you have the option of learning all or some of the arrangement while still being able to play the complete song. We will cover some intermediate to advanced topics including "locked hands" voicings when harmonizing the melody, drop-2 voicings, modified stride playing, and even a bit of bebop improvisation.
In this course, you'll learn a new standard every month. Each standard will be broken down into both simple and advanced arrangements so this course is great for players of all levels. You'll learn how to create both a solo and group arrangement while also learning two-handed comping and improvisation.
