MOONLIGHT IN VERMONT by Johnny Smith

Johnny Smith is one of my favourite jazz guitarists, and this arrangement of the jazz standard Moonlight In Vermont is very special and was a hit for him back in the day.

He uses VERY STRETCHY chord grips - many are what are called 'close voicing' where the notes are played 'in order': R 3 5 7 and others are super tasty grips in various inversions - I made a lesson specifically on Johnny Smith Chord Grips too - with a PDF chart free for registered users - might come in handy trying to learn this song ;)

I found learning this a very rewarding challenge, my mini pinky hated me for wanting to learn this but I feel stoked that I managed to play it in the end, although it still gets a little crunchy in some spots - I'm going to keep working on for a bit.

Hope you enjoy it.
