Here’s a list of jazz standard lesson requests I have been sent. Please vote for the tunes you would like to see most of all, and also include other suggestions below if not included here.
For your information, I select tunes based on the following criteria:
- Part of the jazz standard repertoire
- Relevance to the theory lessons. Able to incorporate theory topics that we have covered.
- Above anything else, the tunes that you - the students - would like to learn!
Please vote below… you can vote for 5 different standards. I will remove them from the list when the lesson has been created.
Every Time We Say Goodbye
Cry Me A River
- If I should Lose You
The Way You Look Tonight
Fly Me To The Moon
- 500 Miles High
- Never Let Me Go
Georgia On My Mind
As Time Goes By
On Green Dolphin Street
- You Must Believe In Spring
I would like to suggest naima for the list.
Thanks Michael… I’ve added it into the poll.
How’s about On Green Dolphin Street and Passion Dance
I’d like to suggest Never Let Me Go. Thanks!
Thanks for the suggestions! The poll can have a maximum of 20 options so I’ve swapped the 2 out that hadn’t received any votes.
I do plan to cover all of these tunes… the poll will help with the order to cover them.
I’d like to see a lesson on “Don’t let me be lonely tonight”. Great version by Michael Brecker
Thanks Michael we can certainly cover that tune.
I would love to see tutorials on Unforgettable, What a Difference A Day Makes, and I’ve Got You Under My Skin.
Thanks for the suggesstions Andrew… all great tunes!
Thanks Hayden, loving the site so far!
Awesome glad your enjoying it.
I will be publishing two lesson on Bossa Nova in the next couple of hours… the email will be going out to everyone soon
How about ‘A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square’,such a great tune to play.
Thanks for the suggestion Paul… it’s been added to the lessons schedule.
Is Bewitched, Bothered… on your list? Also did you say you’ll be creating a lesson for Estate?
I like the new green progress bar on the tablet! Thanks for always adding such great content, the transcriptions are a huge bonus!!
Yes we can certainly cover that tune.
Estate should be the next bossa tune we cover - take a listen to Gilberto singing it:
Glad you noticed the video player features! If you remember when I mentioned to you I was frustrated with the issues with the current one, well now I have found a new solution that looks much better, and is much more reliable. It is powered by the same video player but looks slightly different.
The test is working well: https://www.pianogroove.com/video-test/ - now I just need to switch over the embed codes.
ps. don’t panic that play button reappears when pausing the test video, I just need to add a line of code to sort this out. The left-align will also be corrected once the switch takes place.
I’m really happy that with the new solution!!
Waltz for Debbie would be nice.
Thanks Guy… yes great tune and we can definitely cover it
I’d love to see lesson on Sweet Lorraine. Thx
Great thanks Michael, I will create another poll once I’ve got through the numbers above.
Thanks for posting the tune suggestion here
