WAVE: Chord Melody Lesson
In my previous lesson I analyzed AC. Jobim’s ,”Wave” and demonstrated how it is actually a 12 bar blues with an added bridge featuring the same changes as “Tune Up” by Miles Davis and the bridge to “Cherokee” by Ray Noble! In this video I use various concepts from that previous lesson to teach you a full chord melody arrangement of “Wave”.
The cool thing about this arrangement, as you’ll learn from watching the lesson, is that it works both in a trio or duet setting with a bass player, or simply as a solo guitar piece “a la Joe Pass”. Even though I use a lot of interesting chords and finger-style concepts, I offer suggestions towards the end of the video on how to simplify the arrangement if needed. There’s a lot to learn here, so check it out!
