This is a great lesson for beginning to intermediate improvisers on learning to hear the chord changes.
This lesson is based off of two youtube clips featuring Wynton Marsalis playing a jazz version of Happy Birthday. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Amwq43-lrM
I talk about how to figure out the chord changes to this simple tune and provide you with a lead sheet in Bb,Eb and C.
I also give you 5 tools you can use to improvise over the “Happy Birthday” changes.
I play the examples on the video with my soprano saxophone. (36 Minute Video)
