In this important lesson, I will teach you techniques for analyzing the structure of songs. Once you learn how to analyze a piece of music, it becomes much easier to both improvise and transpose that song to new keys. We will work through analysis for songs: Ain’t Misbehavin’, All The Things You Are and I Could Write A Book.
