Peghead Nation instructor Joe K. Walsh and guitarist Grant Gordy have over 20 years of creating music together in configurations including their own duo, members of  Mr Sun (with Darol Anger and Adrian O’Donnell), and many other bands and projects. While in the Peghead Nation studio shooting lessons for Joe’s most recent course, Swing and Jazz Mandolin,  they treated us to this short but oh-so-sweet take of the classic “Sweet Georgia Brown.” In his course, Joe teaches an improvised solo on the tune by mandolinist Tiny Moore from the recording Tiny Moore Live! that includes a chorus based on the melody and a chorus based primarily on the chord progression.

Swing and Jazz Mandolin Joe K WalshIn Swing and Jazz Mandolin, you’ll learn to play swing and jazz melodies and classic solos from jazz legends like Lester Young, Miles Davis, and Django Reinhardt, as well as swing mandolinists like Tiny Moore and Jethro Burns. For each song, you’ll learn the melody and a solo, along with tips on technique, phrasing, and improvisation. Joe will be adding new material to this course each month. Check out his course introduction video on the main Swing and Jazz Mandolin page.
