Robert B. Yelin – Jazz Favorites for Solo Guitar

This fantastic jazz guitar collection includes Robert Yelin’s lush chord melody arrangements in standard notation and tab for 35 favorites, including Autumn in New York, I Could Write a Book, Nature Boy and more. Robert Yelin is perhaps the most prolific arranger of guitar music in the classic chord-melody style, popularized by players such as Johnny Smith and Joe Pass. This collection of 35 jazz standards from the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s is for the serious jazz guitar student, as it puts a four or five note chord under almost every melody note.
Yelin draws from a palate of mainstream jazz chords that are, with a few exceptions, reasonable on the hands, and you will see the same chords used again and again throughout the book. There are occasional four fret stretches but thankfully no five fret handkillers. In addition, the tablature is a welcome sight to those of us who are slow music readers. Working up these tunes will really put the polish on your chord changes, and give you a cool repertoire of oldies to play unaccompanied, but be ready for some work (and some tired hands) getting these beauties up to tempo.
