The Ideal "Let's Perk Up My Jazz Phrasing!" Tutorial
Improv (a.k.a as soloing), in a jazz context, is the fine art of creating melodic lines that accurately reflect the chords in the song. It not only requires the jazz improviser to create lines in the spur of the moment that draw the ear from one chord to the next; like a patient photographer or a master comedian, the improviser must choose exactly the right moment to deliver their phrase for devastating effect. Good improvisations (and great improvisers) constitute the backbone of this century-long tradition. In brief, if you want to be a good jazz musician, you must become a confident improviser! :-)
The balanced approach in this guitar tutorial ensures that you learn some concepts as well as some practical soloing ideas. Drawing directly from the 2nd Pillar approach in Improv 102, this course teaches you how to begin mastering jazz phrasing.
Content and Overview
Through over 60 minutes of video instruction, you'll be able to understand our trademark method for teaching improvisation: The Three Pillars of Improvisation. Focusing on the 3rd Pillar of Improvisation, "Articulating Your Lines", you will become more familiar with the myriad ways to start and end your phrases. Practice directly with Marc in order to refine your improvised melodies and make them more cohesive and compelling.
Through it all, Marc-Andre Seguin will teach you the best way he knows how: by showing you, and then by getting you to try it yourself. Marc's signature call-and-response-style practice videos allow you to not only try out what you learned in a lesson—they let you see and hear how a real jazz guitarist does it! There's no better way to learn than through hearing real examples, and trying them out for yourself.
Just like in Improv 101, we have included a few "discussion" videos at the end of the course to help you understand the more abstract elements of improvisation. Watch these videos, then tackle some of the play-along practice videos again with Marc's advice in mind. Intentional repetition is the key to unlocking the secrets of becoming a confident jazz improviser.
NOTICE: this course is the 3rd in a series of other improvisation courses. It builds off of the course "Jazz Guitar Improv 102." While this is the last course in the series on general jazz improv techniques and sensibility, there will of course be more courses released on specific topics and approaches in jazz improvisation.
Marc-Andre Seguin is the webmaster, "brains behind" and teacher on JazzGuitarLessons.net, the #1 online resource for learning how to play jazz guitar.
He draws from his experience both as a professional jazz guitarist and professional jazz teacher to help thousands of people from all around the world learn the craft of jazz guitar.
