Welcome to Play Jazz Guitar 2: Rhythm & Lead Fundamentals - the second leg of your TrueFire Learning Path journey towards becoming a solid jazz guitar player.
This Jazz Learning Path core course is presented by 3 top TrueFire educators: Tom Dempsey, Sheryl Bailey, and Frank Vignola.
They’ll guide your development of the essential skills and get up and running quickly -- no reading music, no boring exercises, no tedious theory to struggle through. In fact, you’ll play your way through the entire course.
In Play Jazz Guitar 1 you learned some jazz chords, rhythms, melodies and a couple of songs. Here in Play Jazz Guitar 2, you’re going to venture even further down the path with essential rhythm and lead fundamentals. You’ll learn some hip new jazz chords, walking bass lines, and how to play a ii V I progression. You’ll also learn the pentatonic scale and then how to start improvising with it.
The educators demonstrate all of the key examples over jam tracks (where and when applicable) to simulate a real-world application, in a musical context. All of the key examples are also tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes.
You’ll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can play, loop or slow down the tab and notation as you work through the lessons. Plus, you’ll have all of the available jam tracks to work with on your own.
Take as much time as you need to work through each video guitar lesson before moving on to the next lesson.
