In this lesson we will learn one of the most played jazz and gypsy jazz standards - "CARAVAN".

"Caravan" is composed by Juan Tizol and Duke Ellington. First version of the song was recorded in Hollywood in 1936 and was first performed as an instrumental by Barney Bigard and his Jazzopaters.

In my "Caravan" gypsy jazz arrangement you will learn how to improvise over the changes and learn the main theme note by note as well as the improvisation. It is full of useful licks that you can use in your jazz vocabulary.

I have provided 18 pages full tabs where I have marked the chords above the bars and also the picking patterns (upstrokes and downstrokes) of EVERY NOTE that I have played here so you can get the maximum insight of how it is played.

There are 16 slow and fast videos. Each of them contains 16 bars showing the sections separately.

The form of the composition is AABA (in the slow/fast videos I have marked them as A , A2 , B , A3 for a better insight).
