“Just The Way You Are” Chord Melody

by | Chord Melody

A chord melody lesson of a gorgeous tune which you’re most likely familiar with…”Just The Way You Are” by Billy Joel. This is considered one of the “new standards” and features all the usual  jazz harmony we’d  find in any of the classics from yesteryear. To make it more interesting as a solo guitar fingerstyle piece, I’ve even included some other influences in my arrangement,  such as Travis picking (a la Chet Atkins), and some classical guitar concepts. But I suggest you check it out for yourself…


The Just The Way You Are Files can be downloaded for $7.50 (buy me a cup of coffee & a snack?). Your contribution is much appreciated, as it helps support the site and allows me to keep investing the long hours required to produce these lessons. The download includes: a 5 page PDF with both regular notation and TAB, an MP3 of the arrangement, a Band in a Box File and a Midi File.
