"Dark Eyes" (Очи чёрные, Ochi chyornye, Les yeux noirs) is probably the most famous Russian song. This is a gypsy jazz version of the song and this version has become a must know song in the Gypsy Jazz repertoire.
This is the lesson covering my song called An Old Modern Time from my solo album Let It Out, released in 2006. It's a cool Neoclassic kind a piece with lot of alternate picking, string skipping, sweeping, few legato licks etc.
In this lesson we will learn one of the most played jazz and gypsy jazz standards - CARAVAN. You will learn how to play the main theme as well as the improvisation over the chord changes . It is full of useful licks that you can use in your jazz vocabulary. Have fun.
