Watch the Instrumentals online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 10: Advanced Soloing Principles
Larry Carlton teaches you 3 of his hit songs in this section. You'll learn the melody, changes and improvisational approaches for Kid Gloves, Room 335, and Smiles and Smiles To Go. Larry first performs the tunes as he would on the bandstand, and then steps you through a detailed breakdown for all of the parts and approaches.
TIP! A great way to stay excited about practicing something is if it starts to actually sound like the lesson. This is accomplished by getting down the technique, working it up to speed and so on. BUT, it is also important to try and get as close as you can to the sound and the tone of the instructor's guitar. They have been dialing in their tone for years so it makes sense to try and emulate what they are doing. Take your time and tweak on your amp - listen to what their guitar sounds like and get yours as close to that as you can. This will actually make your playing sound better to your ear and give you more confidence!
