Welcome to Play Jazz Guitar 3: Tools & Techniques - the third milestone 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 and 2, you built up your vocabulary of Jazz chords and licks; learned how to play several standard jazz songs; and can now solo and improvise a little bit. Here in Play Jazz Guitar 3: Tools & Techniques, you’ll learn a variety of new techniques including more chord melody and arpeggio concepts. You’ll also work on improvising with the Major scale, tackle some Bebop, and work with more ii V I variations to spice up your harmonic content.
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.
