Welcome to episode 348 where I play a jazz ballad solo guitar set to commemorate the last time I play my guitar. I play through my 6 favorite jazz ballads and briefly discuss what makes them great jazz standards and a few harmonic and melodic lessons from each.
Listen to episode 348
So, I’ve got a shocking announcement: On this episode today, this is going to be the last time that I play my guitar, the very last time.
Okay, okay, okay, maybe not the very last time. Actually, I probably will play it in the future, but I can pretty much guarantee I won’t be playing it very often anymore, and I definitely won’t be playing it for probably a while.
I’ll tell you about that in just one second, but obviously, since this is happening, to commemorate the moment on today’s episode, I’m gonna play a little solo guitar show for you on this guitar, playing my 6 favorite jazz ballads, all about telling you why they’re great ballads to learn and some lessons you can learn from them as well.
In this episode:
1. Why this is the last time I will play my guitar
2. Prelude to a Kiss
3. My Ideal
4. But Beautiful
5. Polka Dots and Moonbeams
7. Darn That Dream
