Billie’s Bounce

by | Chord Melody

If you’re not familiar with my music background, in my teens I was into rock and mainly blues for almost 10 years before getting into jazz and formally pursuing music studies. Who knows, this might be your case too as it is with many current jazz guitarists! But I mention this because this video features a finger-style arrangement through which I revisit my roots, and pay tribute to some of my early influences. On the acoustic blues side, namely Robert Johnson and Mississippi John Hurt, and on the jazz side, none other than Charlie Parker who wrote this piece…Billie’s Bounce.


The “Billie’s Bounce” lesson files, can be downloaded for $8.00. The download includes the following files:  PDF with both regular notation and TAB of the arrangement (improvised solo not included), MP3, a Band in a Box file, as well as a Midi file so you can practice using the free downloadable notation app: “Muse Score”.
