Aaron Weinstein has a thriving career as a violin and mandolin soloist, composer, and performer, and recently was named as one of Downbeat’s Rising Stars in the venerable publication’s 2019 critic’s poll. We’re happy to have Aaron on the Peghead Nation mandolin instruction staff with his new course, Chord Melody Mandolin with Aaron Weinstein.
While Aaron was in the Peghead Nation studio recording lessons for his course, he played this chord melody improv on the great Duke Ellington song ”Do Nothin’ Till You Hear from Me,” which has been recorded by Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Dr. John, and many others. It is a beautiful example of the chord melody style that Aaron teaches in his course.
