Fly Me to the Moon - How to play the Melody & Chords for Beginner/Intermediate Mandolin

This is a lesson for beginner & intermediate mandolin players on how to play the standard Jazz song 'Fly Me to the Moon'. Originally written as a waltz by Bart Howard in 1954, it was shifted into 4/4 by Quincy Jones for the now famous Frank Sinatra version in 1964. We'll look at the chords and melody and talk about how some of these Jazz standards may look complicated at first, but you are allowed to simplify a few things to make them more accessible for beginner/intermediate players.
