In my defense, I said I'd post 30 charts in 30 days--not that I wouldn't do any skipping-and-cramming. I skipped a few days to launch the Summer Cover Competition, and this is the cram.
I charted "Baby, It's Cold Outside" for my wife for Christmas last year, so that we could sing it together. Some people find the song creepy, going as far as to call it a date-rape set to jazz. Others see the female character in the song wanting to stay, but putting up token protest. I'm obviously in the latter category.
I don't teach jazz, and can't play much, but the strum pattern I've recommended works for most jazz tunes. Damp the strings with your fretting hand after each down-strum by releasing pressure just enough to stop the strings from ringing, which will get you that percussive Freddie Green sound. And remember to swing!
