Stella by Starlight "chord/melody" – Jazz Guitar lessons – Watch and Learn

Here´s my chord/melody jazz guitar arrangement to the song ”Stella by Starlight”. There are guitar tabs included in the video and a slow version with the arrangement! There are also soloing lines transcribed with comments on which scales I use and in the end of the video there´s a backing track as well.
When learning jazz and jazz chords it´s a good exercise to play arrangement like this when one see the chords in a new way and also learn them in context to the melody.
Stella by Starlight is a well known jazz standard written by Victor Young and recorded by many of the jazz giants as Miles Davis, Phil Woods, Jim Hall, Jimmy Rainey and more. It was composed for the main title and soundtrack of the 1944 Paramount Pictures film, The Uninvited.
It has some nice harmonic progressions and the melody is really sweet. As a jazz guitarist it´s nice to have it in the repertoire and it´s a tune that often appears in jamming so it´s a good tune to learn.

Guitar arrangement music score available to purchase here.
