Aaron Weinstein is widely regarded as one of today’s leading jazz mandolinists, and he has a thriving career as a violin and mandolin soloist, composer, and performer. We’re happy to have Aaron join the Peghead Nation mandolin instruction staff with his new course, Chord Melody Mandolin with Aaron Weinstein.

In his new course, Aaron teaches how to combine chords and melody to play jazz standards in the style pioneered by jazz mandolinist Jethro Burns and guitarists like Joe Pass and Bucky Pizzarelli. 

While Aaron was in the Peghead Nation studio recording lessons for his course, he treated us to this chord melody version of the great song written in 1939 by Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg for The Wizard of Oz, “Over the Rainbow.” It is a beautiful example of the style that Aaron teaches in his course.
