Stuck in that rut
Tired of playing those same old lines and melodies? No worries, we've got a
solid fix for you - intervals. Interval Insights to be precise.
Intervals are not
only the basic building blocks of music, they also comprise an ideal palette
of textures for coloring up your rhythm work, solos and compositions. Using familiar styles
as a showcase for each interval, we'll show you quick, and very cool ways to put them
to use in your own playing. Intervals Insights is a hands-on playing course
that yields immediate results without a lot of tedious theory and exercises.

Whatever your preferred style, this course will enlighten your understanding
of how, why and when to choose a particular interval to flavor your comping,
solos and melodies. Once your ear is trained and tuned, you'll quickly begin
recognizing and anticipating specific intervals during improvisations and
brilliance of Interval Insights stems from the truly gifted player
and educator Charles Chapman. Chapman toured the world with jazz luminaries,
authored hundreds of articles and books, was director and jazz
professor at Berklee College for many years and is a legend among pros and students
alike. Top instructor and author Rich Maloof, will perform the video
examples and guide you through Interval Insights.
Rather than getting
bogged down in theory, Interval Insights fast-tracks the good stuff. Our
video lessons feature solos and rhythm parts in the style of guitar greats
like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, John Scofield, and many others.
You can decide just
how deep you want your personal "insight" to go. At the first level, you'll
get some cool licks to use as fills and solo breaks. Go a little deeper, and
you'll see how the concepts pay off big time for your songwriting,
improvising and group playing. Dig into the etudes and exercises — a deep reservoir of
true knuckle-busters — and start building some seriously scary chops.
