In this lesson we make the first step for a bigger arrangement and learn to play only the melody from Yardbird Suite like it's written in the lead sheet. Pay attention to the swing phrasing. If you are firm with the melody in the right rhythm start to play around and alter it in a swing-like fashion.
- Play the melody with your right hand.
- Use swing phrasing.
- Alter the melody from the written notes in a swing style.
