    Description

    Cole Porter's beautiful, witty songs have become timeless jazz standards, and they sound great on guitar. In this dvd, Fred plays and teaches six complete arrangements of Cole Porter gems, including guitar backup (for singing) and instrumental chord solos for each tune. Just for fun, Fred includes the rarely-heard introductory verses to three of the songs, as well as ad-lib instrumental solos.

    After playing each tune, Fred gives you a run-down on the arrangement, going over tricky spots and analyzing the chord progression and substitutions. Then he replays it, slower, on a split screen with close-ups of both hands. Best of all, you can read all six arrangements (tablature, music and chord grids) in the booklet that comes with this video.

    Chord soloing (playing the melody and chords at the same time) is a very complete and satisfying guitar style. This lesson will get you playing some of the classiest jazz tunes ever written: Night and Day, At Long Last Love, Let's Do It, All Of You, You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To and Easy To Love.
