This month's song is one of the best songs from the Swing Era, Don't Get Around Much Anymore. Notice the eighth rests at the beginning of most of the phrases. That eight rest sets; the timing for swing music.

The difference between the first and second arrangement is the addition of additional chords. What makes this slightly challenging is that the chord changes are on every beat. Rehearse this slowly till you can change from one chord to another easily then SLOWLY increase your tempo till you eventually are at your best tempo. Two of my favorite orchestral backgrounds for thus song are Smooth Foxtrot with Alter Style and Frank and The Count with or without Alter Style.

Please tell all your Lowrey friends to check out my website. The more players who visit thus website the leverage I have for great lesson songs.
See you next month!
