"In my opinion, this Henry Johnson's masterclass is the best jazz class you've ever recorded, and I have almost if not all of them. I hope you'll do more classes with this great jazz melodies builder." - Joel, TrueFire StudentHenry’s debut album, You’re the One, won a five-star rating from Downbeat magazine, was nominated for a Grammy, and was described by a JazzTimes review as “a thoughtful piece of work which may well become a jazz guitar classic.” Henry has recorded a number of other albums and has recorded and performed with luminaries such as Ramsey Lewis, Vanessa Ruben, Richie Cole, Nancy Wilson, and Dizzy Gillespie, among others.
"FANTASTIC! This long-awaited series is vitally important for guitarist young and old. Henry is an excellent professor of the music of which he loves. Through the years Henry has absorbed the music of jazz and other genres like a 'sponge.' It takes a special talent to be able to hear, study, practice, ask questions of the legendary jazz artists and have the ability to truly perform to the highest caliber in order to achieve excellence. Bravo Henry, bravo! And thank you to the company and staff that produced this much-needed video." - Renee M.In the second section, Henry guides you through a series of performance studies, in a variety of styles and keys to help illustrate how to apply the concepts covered in the first section. Henry will first perform the study over a backing track and then break it down explaining the underlying techniques and harmonic approaches.
"Henry's cool Blues Shuffle lesson got me hooked! Minimalistic playing with cool variations ... very cool and insightful! TrueFire has some phenomenal jazz courses and Henry Johnson just got himself added to that list! Great material and shared stories along with added concepts and great hints!" - Jim C., TrueFire StudentAll of the key examples and performance studies are tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes. You’ll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can play, loop and/or slow down the tab and notation as you work through the lessons.
