Fun way to apply jazz concepts to a traditional song!
A great way to combine rhythm options on LH chord shells and added RH harmony notes under the melody, especially useful on songs with circle progressions for starters. Once comfortable, the concepts can be easily transferred to songs with other types of progressions.
