Music is a language. In the same way that words and sentences are connected to form stories, musical licks and phrases are connected to form solos. And just like any language, the more robust your musical vocabulary is, the more interesting and diverse your solos will be. The video guitar lessons in this core course will equip you with an essential vocabulary of licks along with the technical skills required to take your soloing skills to the next level.
Play Jazz Guitar 5: Lick Lexicon is organized into 2 sections. In the first section, Tom Dempsey reveals a fretboard navigation system based on 5 tonality shapes. Learn this system and you’ll be able to play in any key, in any position on the fretboard. In Section 2, Sheryl Bailey, Tom Dempsey, Tom Wolfe, David Hamburger, and James Hogan contribute to a diverse collection of 50 jazz licks for you to add to your lick lexicon.
