Jake Reichbart – Pop Hits for Solo Jazz Guitar

Jake Reichbart has been among the busiest freelance guitarists in the greater Detroit region. As a sideman, he appears on countless recordings and jingles and has performed alongside Motown legends and jazz greats alike, performing in more than 4,200 live gigs. By learning this diverse collection you can see inside the approach and develop them further yourself if you choose. Jakes Guitar style is to provide a bass line, melody and hooks plus a percussive element that stays very true to the original songs intent without being so slavish as to make them impossible to play. These arrangements are not just simple alternating bass and melody or arpeggiated chords. NOT for the absolute beginner as it takes some dexterity but all are approachable. There is not too much ‘jazz’ harmonization just to be clever (not that Jake isn’t capable of such things) that in the hands of many might mask the songs. Some songs are obviously ‘jazzy’ such as steely dan’s ‘deacan blues, or nora jone’s ‘don’t know why’ and joe jackson’s ‘steppin out’ while others are pop and soul classics. The tunes are played and then some of the thinking and technique are shown, but no ‘fluff’ in the instruction.

Jake shares tips and techniques on solo guitar, and teaches his arrangements of these popular songs:

  • Big Yellow Taxi – Joni Mitchell/Counting Crows
  • Crazy – Patsy Cline/Willie Nelson
  • Deacon Blues – Steely Dan
  • Don’t Know Why – Norah Jones
  • I Heard It Through The Grapevine – Marvin Gaye
  • Michelle – The Beatles
  • Steppin’ Out – Joe Jackson
  • You Are So Beautiful – Joe Cocker
