Harmony explained

Hated by many, but once you understand it, it will become a great and important advantage for your playing and understanding of music. Breaking down, and analyzing different harmony patterns is key not only to play freely, but also to avoid mistakes and errors while playing with a band.

MP3 backing tracks

Exercising alone is okay, but it is not the same, as playing with a band. Of course, your bandmates won't play with you the same thing over and over again. Backing tracks from real live musicians help you to practice everything you want, as often as you need and as simular to a band as possible.

Analaysis of the great standards

In order to become brilliant, we have to study the great. Breaking down their idea of music and understanding how they wanted their great songs to sound is a big step in developing your own style. Learn from absolute heroes like Miles Davis, John Coltrane or Stevie Wonder and apply this knowledge to your songs and improvisations.

"I've been playing for 55 years, and playing jazz for 25 years in big bands, and this package has opened my eyes to new things I would have never thought of. Not only the scales, that sound so cool, but learning the new sequencing of notes and experimenting with them and applying them to not only jazz, but country, rock, and pop, give a fresh new perspective on approaching songs, and definitely a way to break out of the same ol' same ol' and have fun working with new sounds again.

¨This is an outstanding lesson: thank you. I appreciate the metaphor but I'm especially blown away by the quality of the examples. Even the simple examples are truly musical... I'm going to study this deeply, as I struggle with playing flashy licks (badly) and need to get back to basics¨
