Watch the Performance Studies online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 6: Soloing Principles
In this final section, Sheryl Bailey guides you through a series of bebop playalongs for 2-5-1 Major improvisations, 2-5-1 Minor improvisations, and 2-5-1 Major and Minor improvisations. You'll also play your way through a Blues By II V performance study applying all of your bebop improvisational skills in a real-world musical context.
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!
