Fly Me to the Moon for Beginner Piano


There are three basic steps to getting a jazz swing feel on the piano. First, learn to play and interpret the melody with a swing feel. Secondly, accompany the melody using diatonic 7th chords. Lastly, apply a swing pattern to your left hand. You can use these three steps to create solo piano arrangements for dozens of swing tunes in your Real Book. Using “Fly Me to the Moon” as an example, we’ll break down each step of the jazz swing style on piano for the complete beginner including:
– Swinging the Melody
– Understanding the Chord Symbols
– Identifying the Guide Tones of Each Chord
– Applying a Swing Groove
