"Smooth Operator" - Sade Instrumental Cover Music Produced and Performed by Mark Jeffery Campayno www.musicians-inc.com www.youtube.com/user/mrcampy123
This song hardly needs an introduction. Easily, the greatest Smooth Jazz song of all time, Smooth Operator is tall and cool like Sade herself. I played around a bit with the melody but kept the important parts in there. I adore this song and am thrilled to finally get the chance to play on it.
A collection of cover tunes. Each is intended as educational only. The purpose is not to copy someone else's work, but in fact to spread the word about these great pieces of music. I don't play them note for note as it is not my style to do so.
A collection of original music, improvised, composed, or maybe even a combination of both. Much of it acoustic, the following songs are my way of expressing what only instrumental music can...emotions without words.
A collection of improvisations in a Smooth Jazz or Funk style. My favorite mode of musical expression is improvisation. It's a way to check on your internal musical vocabulary. I hope you like my approach to creating melodic lines in this style.
This series of short but detailed lessons will concentrate on the ways in which your guitar playing can become more interesting and creative. String bending, tremolo bar use, tapping, sliding, and hammer and pull-off techniques will be demonstrated and discussed.
