This week we are going to learn to play the melody and variations of it to "How Long." Starting with the simplest form of the vocal line then slowly embellishing the melody plus lines added to and around the melody making it more interesting and a bit like a vocalist adding their twist on it. We will also learn chordal possibilities to spice up the arrangement and I will talk about adding chords to a simple song like this. I demonstrate many different turn arounds and way of approaching the song.
