As you all know, I love playing old jazz standards on the guitar. "Stompin' at the Savoy" is from 1933, and was associated with Benny Goodman's orchestra. The melody is written to be played by multiple instruments.
So why, when I sat down last night looking for something to play on the new Fender Stratacoustic, did I stumble onto this song? I liked the way the A flat 6th chord to D flat minor 7th sounded.
What can I tell you? I also ran through "St. Thomas" "Stella by Starlight" and other old gems, but this one sang to me.
What do you think?
