Hi! In this lesson we’ll be dissecting the winning entry of the 1st Live4Guitar competition and we’ll go through various phrasing ideas, as well as approaches to improvising and lead playing, in detail.
"Limehouse Blues" is a jazz standard written by Douglas Furber (lyrics) and Philip Braham (music). In this gypsy jazz lesson I have implemented phrases that the great gypsy players use (Stochello, Bireli,Gonzalo, Debare etc...) You will learn how to improvise over the changes and improve your jazz/gypsy jazz
"Got A Match" is a song by jazz and fusion keyboard player Chick Corea, released in 1986. Even though the song is originally composed in jazz rock/fusion style, this version is more into an acoustic gypsy jazz style. In this lesson you will learn how to improvise over the changes and improve jazz vocabulary.
This lesson is based on one of my instrumental songs, called "They Came from the North". The song contains a mixture of interesting and modern-sounding melodic lines and phrases and quite a few cool shredding parts.
