The Look of Love Chord Melody

by | Bossa Nova, Chord Melody, Jazz Standards

In this lesson you will learn a finger-style chord melody arrangement of a popular composition by a prolific songwriter who initially made his mark in pop music during the 1960s. Although you don’t hear his name that much in the world of jazz standards, I personally believe he is right up there with Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers and all the legendary songwriters of the 20th century. And of course I’m referring to Burt Bacharach and I chose this lovely composition of his, because of its jazzy harmony… The Look of Love!

In the video, in addition to teaching you the arrangement which I play as a bossa, I also show you ways of super simplifying it, so if this is a tune you want to learn and you feel you don’t quite have the chops to play it like me, you can still do so!

    Morning Richie. Hope all is well with you in these strange times. I tried to download a chord melody arrangement and was told I need to upgrade my membership. As an Elite member may I not download these files?

      Yes you may! There are 2 download links. Did you click on the Elite Download link? If you clicked on the regular download link, it won’t give you access.
