No one would argue that one of the most effective ways you can become a better guitarist is to play with other musicians. That’s where the real learning happens. By sitting in at jam sessions, interacting with the rhythm section, and playing behind soloists, you can hone your comping chops and learn how to improvise compelling solos yourself.
In James Hogan’s Jazz Blues edition of Trading Solos, you’ll jam with James over five popular jazz blues grooves, in a variety of keys and feels. James kicks off the course sharing some tone tips to help you get a great ‘jazz blues’ sound. And then for each of the five grooves, James shows you a handful of moves and comping approaches. You’ll then take turns applying those ideas, trading solos, and comping for each other over the tracks.
”We’ll jam together over five killer jazz-blues grooves in a variety of keys, tempos , and feels. We’ll play over a killer organ trio shuffle in B flat, a classic jazz blues in F with some altered chords and two fives, a modal waltz inspired by the great Miles Davis, a swingin’ jazz minor blues, and finally a :”bird” blues in F inspired by jazz genius Charlie Parker. You’ll be able to jam along together on screen, checkout the tabs and chord charts, and follow along with video synced tab, too. This is gonna be fun!”
James will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the key examples and performance studies. Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tools to sync the tab and notation to the video lesson. You can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are included to work with on your own as well.
