Watch the Shades of Jazz online guitar lesson by Kenny Wessel from Shades of Jazz

Thanks for listening! I hope this inspires you to explore some of these ideas using familiar shapes and concepts in new ways to open up and expand your playing. The motivation for this course was to get players to use the things they already know in some different contexts in order to enter into some new harmonic and musical territories. The important thing is to develop your own voice with this material. If you find some things that interest you in this course: a sound, an idea, a phrase... practice it, dig deeper into it, experiment with it in other ways, generate your own exercises or permutations. Work things out in different positions, different string sets, with other articulations, play it in different keys, tempos, time feels, etc. There is no end to the things we can practice, especially if we practice creatively. Approach the material in as many ways and from as many angles as possible, that will keep things fresh and exciting.

Have fun with this course and thanks again for checking the course out!
