    Sorry I'm late -- and happy new year, all you good jazz-guitar people!

    Our standard for Jan 2020 will be Perdido (Juan Tizol, Ervin Drake, and Hans Jan Lengsfelder, 1942).

    That's a crowd pleaser. Even when I play it for young audiences it generates an enthusiastic response.

    Good choice. (Sorry to interfere with lessons.)

    For those who don't speak Spanish, "perdido" translates as "I'm lost." Which often is how I feel when playing jazz. Hence my user name. Great tune, though!

    Juan Tizol may have written the best melody over "rhythm changes" since I've Got Rhythm.

    How is Perdido, at letter A, Rhythm Changes?

    It's not. The bridge is the rhythm changes bridge. (But you knew that.)

    Haven't done this in a while, and I can't let Ragman get all the glory. Kinda of a pop sounding backing track. Was a fun song I didn't know.

    Well played, Sir!

    I'm four months late, but never mind
