  1. Whoa! That is where the flavor is…

  2. Has anyone ever written lyrics to this lovely tune??

  3. Fantastic lesson, you are a great teacher. What about combining Chord and melody?

  4. You are a fantastic guitar player! I love all your videos!

  5. Fantasic Tutorial. Just add some nice other 'color' to all nice tiny the variations I already learned 'bout blue bossa.

  6. Justin, this was an amazing lesson! And I made sure to practice the Bossa rhythm that I learned from your previous video. Seriously man! Greatly appreciated! You're a fantastic player by the way.

  7. I really, really , really want that guitar…can I have it please?..I will play it everyday..I promise…..

  8. Can you please explain the cords!!!

  9. Hola Justin, gracias por el tutorial, pero seria genial que colocaras los acordes en forma de diagrama, saludos

  10. Jason, oops typo time.  I meant: "I can't work out good (jazz) guitar chords since obviously the piano chords are there.

  11. Hey Justin!  Is your email out at your website?  I ask because I compose but don't know a ton of theory (some, not a lot) or perhaps I've forgotten much of what I was taught as a lad.  I ask because I have 2 questions:

    . I can work out the 'top' note in virtually any melody in any sort of music.  I can hear say the Star Spangled Banner or Hey Jude or Blue Bossa, and work out the melody perfectly.  Q. How do you then find THE other notes to find the chords that ACCOMPANY that "top note melody?"

    . The other question?  I've written a jazz piece I'd like my local trio to play; wroteit on keyboard and can't work out good jazz chords.  Can you help me with this – I'll pay a fee I understand.

    Either way,

  12. You Mosaic…………start using your feelings not books, you will get deeper into music this way.

  13. You really look like Norm mcdowel. cool vid
