This week we are learning the second melody section which is single string melody after the chord melody section. This part was originally Harry Carney's clarinet part in the original Duke Ellington version. A simple but beautiful thing. In one part I play a descending line on the B string while the line on the G string ascends. It's a fun a beautiful thing to play and I think you are going to have a ball playing this one!
