Watch the SWAT Sessions: Jazz Rock online guitar lesson by Carl Verheyen from S.W.A.T. Sessions: Jazz Rock
Hi, I'm Carl Verheyen and welcome to the Jazz Rock edition of SWAT Sessions. Jazz rock fuses the tone, feel, bends, hammer-ons, and other rock-centric embellishments and expressions with the sophistication of jazz harmony and improvisation. Playing over changes, the use of exotic scales and modes, crafting more complex and interesting lines and solos are the special weapons and tactics that I'll be demonstrating and breaking down for you over 14 performance studies. We'll examine different feels and a variety of tempos and keys, with each study focusing on a particular technique you'll need for your own jazz rock arsenal.
For each of the performances, I'll break down a few of my key techniques and approaches, plus you'll get standard notation, tab, and rhythm tracks to work with on your own. Alright, get yourself tuned up and plugged in, put a little grit on your tone, and let's play some jazz rock.
