I have just realized that I play the 2 bar of the B part in a different way : |BAB-B2E| instead of |EBA BE2| .

Every Good Boy has a jazz feel

I forgot to say that this tune has to be played with jazz feel. ( …who cares? ) 😏

Habit Forming

Great tune Gian! Once I got it under my fingers … this tune really swings. It seems to lead me down my favorite primrose path … jazzy traditional.

What speed do you prefer to play it?

Thanks for creating this one.

Every Good Boy plays at 132 bpm

I’m happy you like it, it’s one of my favourite.
( Please play the revised version )
I ply it at 132 bpm, more or less.

Every Good Boy likes to call you Gian just to annoy you 🙂

I’m resigned 🙁

Nice tune, Gian🙂
I think it would go well with A Lovely Moring

yes, these tunes are close relative
