im stressing hardcore.. i need to know 8 jazz songs with improvs... and i need to play them smoothly and read sheet music in three weeks... cause i just got the audition requirments sent to me for Bowling Green State University... and i have no idea where to start.

i need good easy songs... like KISS... Keep It Simple Stupid.. thats my policy right now. any suggestions would be great
and don't suggest martin taylor or anything because i need easy songs... like three chord progressions... stuff like that
something i can improve with really easy.


thanx guys,

Matt

I think we can all really agree that nothing is more metal than playing a Telecaster....On fire.

Do you already know how to read sheet music?
The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.

Wave- Antonio Carlos Jobim
My Favorite Things- Wes Montgomery

Those are the songs my guitar teacher started me on for jazz.

I was able to find them on here. You'll need powertabs though. It's a great program if you don't have it already.
