In A Sentimental Mood is one of the best know jazz ballads, composed by Duke Ellington. It’s one

of the top 50 Jazz Standards every jazz guitarist should have in their repertoire. It’s a

pleasure to present you my guitar tutorial on this amazing jazz standard.

In this jazz guitar lesson I teach you my chord melody arrangement of this great jazz ballad. I

transposed In A Sentimental Mood to the key of G /Em, in order to take advantage of the open E

and A strings. My chord melody arrangement sounds quiet mellow and dark in the A section, while I

transposed the B section up one octave to brighten things up a bit.

I teach you all the In A Sentimental Mood guitar chords needed for the general song and weave the

melody in between or on top of the chords. This is called chord melody playin or a guitar

instrumental. There are great sounding jazz guitar chords and voicings in this song.
I’ve arranged this jazz guitar tutorial for intermediate players. It is suitable for the ambitios

beginner as well as intermediate guitar players.
The advantage of a jazz guitar ballad is always the slow tempo, so you have plenty of time in

between to recall the next chord.

While my chord melody arrangement of In A Sentimental Mood is not too hard to play it doesn’t

sound bland either.

I explain every step of what I do. I show every fingering of the chord melody song.

I’ve also made the In A Sentimental Mood TABS for you to download and study. There is also a

Guitar Pro version, so you can buy the PDF guitar tab or the Guitar Pro file tabs.
I also made a backing track, so you can start practicing In A Sentimental Mood right away.

  13. Hi Sandra, that was a beautiful piece of music, thank you.
