This tune - beloved of jazzers since it was written in 1928 - was composed by Cliff Burwell. I've played it, on and off, in various bands, for years, but haven't played it fingerstyle for a long time. After a morning of multi-tracking and layering sound, I just wanted to do a quick recording in one take - warts and all - and this is it!

Sweet Lorraine

Cheers,

Will

Will, for some reason I can't open this link - is it the same version that Uriah Heep did in the 70's?

Thanks Folks - Zohn, did you manage to see it eventually? Sometimes YouTube is out of commission...

Sweet Lorraine was one of those jazz tunes that anyone learning the music just had to get their chops round. It's normally played in F by jazz outfits, if memory serves, but C is far more convenient for guitar!
