Watch the Jazz Turnarounds online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Jazz Guitar 8: Advanced Rhythm Approaches

You can never have too many jazz turnarounds in your bag and that's why Brad Carlton passes on 15 of them here in Section 3. Brad first demonstrates each of the turnarounds and then guides you through an accompanying playalong jam track for your practicing and application purposes.

TIP! Guitar playing is a lot about what you know and understand. Without that you are just fumbling around on the fretboard.

A good way to keep track of all the concepts and different approaches you are going to be working on is to keep a practice notebook handy and jot down these ideas. Your notes can be as simple as "Use the Major pentatonic over a Major chord" or more difficult concepts like chord substitutions. Whatever they are - make notes and review them frequently. Most concepts are things that you will use time and time again throughout your playing career, so keeping track of them all is imperative.

Eventually these concepts become subconscious knowledge like putting one foot in front of the other as you walk across the room, but until then, constant review and repeated use will make sure you are not forgetting or overlooking anything.
