On the 'tube

It’s Only a Paper Moon

...was composed by Harold Arlen, who also wrote "Over the Rainbow" I heard this tune played at a local music festival a few years ago played by a string jazz trio, and thought what a great idea it would be to play it in Chet's style. To date, I haven't been able to find a recording of him playing Paper Moon. But I imagine he might have used some of these licks. I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you Jim, you did it again! I won't pick up my guitar for a week now! Nice picking, Salute Sir!

I love that tune! I particularly like the Frank Sinatra version of this song, and one done by James Darren (for Star Trek DS9). Great job, Jim, thanks for sharing!

Lovely stuff Jim. This tune reminds me of Pappy.
