JAZZ GUITAR WORKSHOP 2018
Are you a guitar player who wants to play jazz guitar?
Then you have come to the right place. In this workshop we will l cover the basic tools for playing jazz guitar. We will talk about jazz harmony, accompaniment and improvisation. And we will also talk about practicing, one of my favourite things - besides drinking coffee.
This workshop is suitable for all levels, although I think you will get the most out of it if you are already playing the guitar for 2-3 years.
So welcome to my workshop we will have a lot of fun!
Here is a quick overview:
In the first part of the workshop we talk about basic stuff. How can you navigate the fretboard? What is the cycle of fifth? and what can we do with it? And last but not least we start using the rhythm pyramid. For example: what are triplets and how can we count them?
2.HOw to comp
In the second part of the workshop we have a look at comping. We talk about different comping rhythms and various ways to practice them, with or without a metronom. And we have a look at two very widely used kinds of voicings. The shell voicing and the drop 2 voicing.
Here are two videos that give you an idea about those chords:
3.HOw to Improvise
In the third part of the workshop we will start improvising using the minor pentatonic and the blues scale. We will try to stay true to the tune and its melody. I will show you a way to play a tune without having to learn all the arpeggios and scales in the first place.
4.How to Practice
In the last part of the workshop you will have so much new stuff to practice that we will absolutely have to talk about practicing. Did I already mention that this is one of my favourite topics? We talk about goals, time management and the importance of a practice plan.
