Posted by Michael Mueller on August 9, 2017 at 4:05 PM
Guitarist Les Paul is, of course, best known as the inventor of the sollidbody electric guitar (among many other guitar and recording devices), but he was also a virtuoso guitarist and top-notch entertainer. Working with his wife Mary Ford, the duo had 16 Top 10 hits from 1950-1954, selling millions of records in the process.
Arguably their biggest hit, "How High the Moon" was actually written by Morgan Lewis (music) and Nancy Hamilton (lyrics). This new solo jazz guitar arrangement takes the original melody and presents it in a form accessible to intermediate fingerstyle and/or jazz guitarists.
And for your listening pleasure, here's Les Paul and Mary Ford's version of this timeless standard.
