We posted an entertaining video of Bee Gees "Giant Steps" recently, and that prompted JazzMando staff writer Mark Wilson to submit to our readership his own incredible chord/melody version of the head. We ran this and an enlightening video on our Tips & Tricks page earlier this week. Now you have the perfect opportunity to dive quite deeply into this Bebop classic!
