POP ROCK

Since 2004 I have played Pop/Rock Covers with the most varied singers, musicians and bands. The result of this experience is the Songbook “Rhythm Guitar Fundamentals Vol 1”,a compilation of historical Pop/Rock songs from the last 40 years.

Here you will have access to the way great improvisers think while they are playing. Ideas that build contrast, surprise, and linger in the memory of any given audience.

MELODIC INTERPRETATION

Knowing how to interpret melodies in instrumental and improvised music is “a sine qua non” requirement for any performer.

In this mini course lets address the various ways of approaching melodies, by focusing particular attention to key notes or phrases, expressiveness and the balance between tension and release.

To embellish single lines phrasing we will harmonize the melody, build second voices and improvise around the original melody. And if your goal is to be able to play by yourself, like a one man band, add Melody Chords to your skills. All your friends will start asking you to play a song for them.

  • Single Lines
  • Use of Intervals
  • Melody Chords
  • Self-Comping

PLAYING OUTSIDE THE HARMONY

One of the greatest mysteries of the Universe is how to “get out” of the rhythm section’s harmonic structure using contrasting melodic lines. Well, maybe not the entire Universe, but the Jazz universe!

There are musicians who play it by ear, others by mistake, and others by chance! The result can always be unpredictable, which compromises our control over the melodic conduction of the solo.

Let’s explore various techniques for you to embellish the melodic phrasing of your solos. Only recommended to brave warriors!

  • Modal Interchange
  • Chromatic Approaches

PICKING PATTERNS TECHNIQUES

While the guitarist’s left hand says “what” to play, the right hand says “how to” play. Jazz schools tend to put a lot of their focus on the notes you play, but little emphasis on the various forms of executing each note or phrase.

Unlike other instruments where you only use one hand to play a note, the guitar requires the synchronization of both hands to produce one sound.

Throughout this 4 lessons Pack, we will perfect the picking technique by practicing patterns. You will feel greater technical awareness, and transport these concepts to play scales, arpeggios and solos.

Please note that there will be no “Face Control” so all Picks will be allowed to participate. The fat and the thin, the old and the new, the coloured and the artistic. Everyone is welcome!
