chord melody arrangements for jazz guitar It's You Or No One

This is not that well known a standard or at least it is not the first choice for guitar players to cover. It has a lot within it that is “obvious” in terms of harmonic progression. That being said, a static melody is always a challenge to harmonize and there are still some nice twists here and there within the chord progression to give us plenty of interest. The solo includes pockets of challenging lines and the audio commentary covers a lot of pertinent ground regarding learning this arrangement.
