Charlie Christian...

Alfred Scoggins (5187) · [archive]
Style: Jazz · Level: Beginner · Tempo: 200
Pages: 1 2 3 4

This is two choruses of a Charlie Christian solo over a standard with very simple chords.

As you can hear he used arpeggios a great deal. He also used passing notes and the odd chromatic run.

Probably this style of playing is passe now but he still did it to perfection. His timing was wonderful and we can certainly learn from some of his runs.
