I had so many request for a chord melody arrangement of The Shadow Of Your Smile. So I made this intermediate level guitar tutorial for you guys, that teaches you how to play The Shadow Of Your Smile on guitar.

In this chord melody lesson I’ll be teaching you the The Shadow Of Your Smile guitar chords as well as the melody. They’re played simultaniously, which is called chord melody style.

It’s a pure instrumental guitar tune, so no vocals are needed. You can play it all on your own.

I’ve added a nice pop touch to it, with some open add9 and m9 chords.

There are also The Shadow Of Your Smile TABS available via the links above.

I hope you like this Jazz guitar lesson. I have many more available for free here on Youtube.

Please give this video a thumb up, if you like it! Please share the love!

  1. Hi Sandra. The Shadow of Your Smile has always been one of my favorites. Chord melody or bossa style, or even sung by Frank Sinatra. What a timeless beautiful song. This also is the score to the movie "The Sand Piper" starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Good movie too. The song has a hauntingly beautiful melody and changes. Thanks for sharing your lovely arrangement. Jerry from PA-USA

  2. Thank you. I have never looked into TABS, I usually played by symbols.

  8. I'm glad you did this song it was on my list of tunes I wanted to learn you made it easy thank you so much.Bobby PS I hope you Wii teach us the tune Wave I know it's hard maybe advance lesson ? Thank you !

  9. "The Sweetheart of Jazz Guitar" has done it again! What a beautiful, plush arrangement of this timeless song! Great job Sandra. I have came across a couple of other arrangements of this song in the past, but they were awkward to finger and poorly harmonized. Yours is absolutely perfect and sounds good to my ears. Thank you SO very much!

  10. Another lesson, another challenge for all of us! Anyway, you've made my life a lot easier: instead of searching the internet for days, looking for good jazz comping songs, I'll just stick with you: your lessons are explained very clearly and the tabs helps me to remember and to practice. I think you make a lot of people very happy!
    PS: I add often a backing track to the song while playing it, to make it more fun (and to cover my errors).

    And here's another monster version from George Benson… and sorry for posting these here, but I think anyone who likes this song and wants to study it in great depth will benefit from all available versions. This one kills me LOL, George makes me want to break my guitars but I know one day I'll be able to learn it perfectly. Enjoy And, Sandra, thank you for your lesson too. I'm enjoying it a lot.

  13. Sandra is a force of nature, a goddess, an element of humanity, who keeps harmony in the world – literally! Her new hair is awesome!
