Watch the 30 Beginner Jazz Licks online guitar lesson by Fareed Haque from 30 Beginner Jazz Licks You MUST Know
Hi, I’m Fareed and welcome to 30 Beginner Jazz Licks You Must Know. Developing a vocabulary of jazz licks is the first step for learning how to solo and improvise over jazz progressions and songs. I've hand-picked 30 versatile jazz licks, each of which can be played over a variety of chord changes, and each of which can be connected with other licks to form longer licks and solos. You'll not only expand your vocabulary for soloing and improvisation, but you'll also build a solid foundation of essential jazz guitar techniques such as slides, hammers, pull-offs and rakes. For each lick, I’ll give you a demonstration over a rhythm track and then break it down note by note. You'll get standard notation and tab plus all of the rhythm tracks to work with on your own...(Be sure to scroll down to the block diagrams, mini lessons, tips and appendices at the bottom of each PDF!)
Special thanks go to Bill Harrison and the folks at www.PlayJazzNow.com
for providing the live-band rhythm tracks in this course. Alright, grab your guitar, and let’s get started!
