Here is a link to Black Orpheus - Guitar Tutorial - Part 1 0n YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0kH-34W10c

In this video, I am demonstrating some basic improvising concepts "mostly based around the open position" that can be used over the jazz standard "Black Orpheus". I am playing a Takamine CP-132SC nylon string guitar using a PICKBOY Exotic Pick-horn.

The backing track is the iReal Pro app with an iPad Air through a pair of TAPCO S-5 Active Studio Monitors.

I have recently discovered a great website called "Learn Jazz Standards". You can download a chord chart to follow along with my tutorial here - https://www.learnjazzstandards.com/index-of-jazz-standards/

I have many more versions of Black Orpheus available here -


The video was shot with an iPhone 6s Plus with the FiLMiC Pro using a Tascam iM2 stereo condenser microphone.

Peace Out!~Mick
