“Stompin’ At The Savoy” Chord Melody

by | Chord Melody, Fingerstyle

Here’s a finger-style chord melody lesson, this time of one of my favorite standards associated with the swing era: Stompin’ at the Savoy. It’s a timeless standard that first became a hit by the Benny Goodman Orchestra way back in 1936. And it just so happens that it really works great as a solo piece on guitar!

Featured in the song’s melody is a very cool “harp style” major 6th arpeggio which I teach you to play by combining open and fretted strings! The video features both regular notation and tab.



The Stompin’ At The Savoy 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 PDF of the transcription with both regular notation and TAB, an MP3 of the arrangement, a Band in a Box File and a Midi File.
