Watch the Acid Jazz online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 7: Style Variations

Fareed Haque demonstrates how to add the 9th and 13th to your pentatonic scales to craft an acid jazz tool set. Fareed's ‘kitchen sink' demonstration illustrates how all of the extensions can be added to your pentatonics to create a wide variety of tonal qualities, all of which are ideal for acid jazz improvisations.

TIP! There is nothing like playing with other musicians! But the next best thing is playing with a recording of a band!

Always work with the jam tracks provided with your lessons. They are not only there because it is more fun to play with jam tracks, but most of the time provide you with important information like rhythmic feel and harmonic content that help you make sense out of what you are working on. Number one thing - always listen to what everyone else in your band is doing! It is so important to play WITH the band and not just OVER the band - and in order to do that you have to get used to listening. Playing with Jam Tracks is a great way to practice this!
