JAZZ STANDARDS FOR SOLO GUITAR
This page is dedicated to Marcel Bossu, one of the godfathers, if not THE godfather of the Belgian jazz- and rockguitar.
By chance I stumbled upon some hundred chrodmelody arrangements of jazz standards by his hand.
What I wanted were arrangements whitout
chord inversions, so the bass was always the base note of the chord,
which was not always the case with Marcel..
I order to do that, I followed the principles described by Mark Levine in his Jazz Piano Book.
My chord notation is composed of 2 parts separated by a "|":
They are all tef-files.
- the first part is the chord, as found in the Real Books, .....
second part indicates the relationship between the melody note (highest
note in the guitar position) and the base note of the chord.
Tef -files can be visualised and listened to with Tabledit's tool Tefview.
