This is the third video in the Charlie Parker for Guitar series! And for this lesson I’ve picked one of the many tunes Bird wrote over the chords to “I Got Rhythm”, a progression commonly referred to as “Rhythm Changes”. It’s called “Moose The Mooche”.

Although this is a fairly intricate piece, especially when played up tempo, I still recommend that you attempt to learn it even if you have to play it slow for now. And that’s because it contains several characteristic rhythmic and melodic elements of the bebop language that you can eventually make a part of your vocabulary!

And don’t forget…as is the case with all the lessons in this series, a free PDF with the notation and TAB is available for download!


The “Moose The Mooche” PDF with Notation and TAB can be downloaded for FREE .  You must be logged in for download link to be visible.
