Don't Get Around Much Anymore > Performance

Here's The Duke Ellington classic "Don't Get Around Much Anymore". It's been done in many versions by many artists. We just go through the melody for the verse and bridge but have to alter the melody in a couple of spots because the correct notes are not on the harp or accessible with ordinary bends. There are occasions where you may have to find a substitute to work around notes that are unavailable.

Key of F on a Bb harp.

Hi Daniel --- Jerry doesn't have tab for his lessons by design.  He wants you to learn it by ear using his breakdown lessons and the slow downer / looper.  You can find the breakdown lessons by clicking on Other Lessons in This Series (just under the right hand side of the video).

Jerry's method is very similar to how we all learned to speak and the Suzuki method for violin.

Love it Jerry!  Funny, this should be my theme song.  Great tune and this is going to be a great one to hone in my playing.
