Conti's back with three more in-depth studies on improvisational jazz soloing. Jazz Master gives you a back seat view of the jazz guitar master's thought process as Conti navigates through jazz changes and blows sizzling improvised solos. Conti shares countless "off-the-sheet" techniques and ideas to help you quickly develop your own ideas and individual voice as a player.
"Conti's Jazz Master series is a breath of fresh air. Although his chops are nothing short of phenomenal, there's none of the "watch how good I can play" attitude so often found in instructional videos. Instead, the accent is on high-quality valuable information, all delivered in a very effective down-to-earth manner. Highly recommended." - Mark Stefani, Vision Music
Fortunately for we mere mortal students of jazz guitar, Conti has an innovative way of presenting jazz instruction. He gets you up and running quickly — no tedious theory, exercises or methodology to master before getting some solid lines under your belt. Spend just fifteen minutes with Jazz Master and you'll already have something new to pull out of your bag at the next gig or jam.
This volume focuses on improvisational soloing over a Latin jazz feel. Conti breaks it all down note-for-note and provides critical guidance along the way following his proven teaching system. Conti's reputation for blazing speed and sophisticated lines is well substantiated in all of the course's solos but fear not, all of the material is demonstrated at slow tempos and the interactive tab player lets you slow the lines down without changing pitch.
This volume takes you back to the day with another smokin' bebop solo and there's no better guide than the master of bebop himself. Conti reveals his extraordinary fret board logic and technique for executing blazing lines with minimal effort (worth the price of admission alone!). The cross-platform (Windows and Mac) interactive lesson player also includes jam tracks so you can work out your lines and have a little fun in the process.
This volume addresses the classic jazz blues groove. Conti is adamant that students need to first develop a versatile vocabulary of jazz lines and understand how to twist, turn and connect them to one another over chord changes. Conti performs a jazz blues solo and then patiently breaks it down note-for-note to help build your vocabulary and understanding of jazz blues lines and improvisation.
