Chord/melody guitar arrangement to the tune Dolphin Dance by Herbie Hancock

Here´s a chord/melody jazz guitar arrangement to the song ”Dolphin Dance”. It´s a watch & learn lesson and the arrangement is written by Thomas Wixtroem.

There are guitar tabs included in the video, a slow version with the arrangement and a backing track as well.

It´s good to learn the chords in context to the melody when one see them from another point of view. To make it work one must change the chord voicings so it fits well to the melody. When it´s a watch & learn lesson you can listen and figure out whats happening in this arrangement. Learn from it and try yourself.

Dolphin Dance is recorded to the album

”Maiden Voyage” by Herbie Hancock.

The musicians on the record are:

Herbie Hancock — piano, Freddie Hubbard — trumpet,

George Coleman — tenor saxophone,

Ron Carter — bass, Tony Williams — drums

I really recommend to listen to this album with these great players and great compositions.

Down below you have pdf files with the lead sheet to the arrangement.

Awesome video Thomas! It will take me a while to learn the whole thing, but it's easy to follow the lesson thanks to the notation on top and by actually seeing what you're doing with your hands. Thanks for sharing!
