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.
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.

"I have been studying with Marc-Andre for about four years now, and have recently recognized that my selection of JGL training program was based on my utmost need of finding direction and structure in my learning. The short course “Improv 101” definitely delivers what I have been seeking, i.e. providing a step-by-step, very practical approach to learning improvisation on chord progressions using simple soloing exercises. Clearly a “unique ability” of MA. Certainly looking forward to 102 and 103 programs…"
