Jason Spell: You Are My Sunshine (Solo Guitar)


My very earliest musical memory is my mother singing to me. She had a few standard children's songs she rotated through, but she sang them as only she could. Her favorite (and mine) was "You Are My Sunshine". For Mother's Day, I thought I'd give it a solo jazz guitar arrangement, with some twists and turns. I think this take on the piece came out with nods to Chet Atkins, Joe Pass, Danny Gatton, Guthrie Govan, Steve Vai, Stanley Jordan, and Josh Martin from Little Tybee. I'm playing on a Carvin Holdsworth HH1 headless guitar.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom! (Watch in HD!)

My arrangement is available in guitar tab + notation format.
