This is the term commonly used to describe the repertoire of show tunes and pop tunes, mostly from the 1920s and 30s, written by the likes of the Gershwins, Rodgers and Hart, Hoagy Carmichael, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, and others of that ilk. This class will focus on how to take a chord and melody chart for a tune of this sort (or to work from a recording) and apply it to the guitar, coming up with a playable arrangement. If you’re sure you want to take this class, you may email me with requests for tune titles. Intermediate/advanced level.
