Hoagy Carmichael wrote some of the most popular songs of all time, and they sound great on guitar. In this DVD, Fred plays and teaches six of Hoagy's best, including guitar backup (for singing) and instrumental versions of each tune. Just for fun, Fred also includes the rarely-heard introductory verses to four of the songs, as well as ad-lib instrumental chord solos.

After playing each tune, Fred gives you a run-down on the arrangement, going over tricky spots and analyzing the chord progression and substitutions. Then he replays it, slower, on a split-screen with close-ups of both hands. Best of all, you can read all six arrangements (tablature, music and chord grids). A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD

Chord soloing (playing the melody and chords at the same time) is a very complete and satisfying guitar style. This lesson will get you playing some of the classiest jazz tunes ever written: Stardust, Georgia On My Mind, Lazy River, Skylark, Rockin' Chair and Lazybones.
