Bebop Guitar: Practice the most famous Charlie Parker’s Tunes

I bumped on this fantastic video by an exceptionally skilled fellow guitar player who stringed together some of the most famous Charlie Parker’s heads to create a montage for (I guess) practice purpose.

I though this was a great idea and you can find it right below.

I will definitely use this video for my practice routine and to keep these tunes up to scratch…this sort of approach kills two birds with one stone, as you add material to your repertoire, and clean up your technique. Thank you to ‘kevinthebeagle’  for posting this video on his channel.

You can find most of these melodies in the following books, which I own and highly recommend:

Charlie Parker Omnibook: For C Instruments (Treble Clef)
