Sussex Jazz Guitar school is on this week Saturday 11am 21st March at the Brunswick. I got great feedback from guitar students regarding last month’s lesson saying how it was a different way to approach creating jazz guitar lines and comping.
This month’s class will be an extension of this where we will continue to learn more ways to create jazz lines outlining the changes and approaching it in a different manner to last time. We will start with a recap then extend the concept even further and look at how we could create a “work out” over a jazz standard tune. In this case, “The night has a thousand eyes”. And once learned, this will give you a clear, concise and focused method of learning new tunes, embedding the harmony in your ears and fingers and seamlessly weaving lines through a tune with many different key changes.
Those of you who were not here last time, it’s ok as we will do a recap at the start of class and you will easily pick up the concept.
Here’s the prep work….
1. Go through again the videos on the last blog entry before this one on “intervalic concepts, double stops, solo jazz guitar”
2. Have a look at the chord changes to the tune below. Melody not needed. Don’t worry about the D pedal over the A section, normal Gmaj to D7 is fine. Google pdf it if you can’t read below.
3. Revise Tritone Subs!
See you this Saturday 21st, 11am til 1.30pm, Brunswick Pub, 1 Holland Rd, Hove!
