Hi guys and gals. This lesson 'Discovering Dorian' is a great introduction to some soloing ideas and techniques in a Jazzy fusion style. It uses a mixture between the Dorian and harmonic minor scales in the key of A minor.
This lesson is about establishing a selection of arpeggios that we can use to superimpose over a minor 7 chord when improvising. There are some cool licks you can use and it will help you make your own.
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.
"Djangology" is a gypsy jazz standard written by the great Django Reinhardt. In my "Djangology" gypsy jazz lesson you will learn how to improvise over the changes and learn the main theme note by note as well as the improvisation. It is full of useful licks that you can use in your jazz vocabulary.
This lesson will help you to spice your approach of one of the most important point in jazz and fusion playing, the II V I. 5 licks are shown and explained using modern ideas of thinking and playing. Interesting points of harmony like diatonic substitution are tackled.
