Jazz Chord Base: a new Approach for Jazz Chords on Guitar
What you’ll learn
To accompany jazz tunes on the guitar
To have an accurate orientation on the fretboard
Do you like jazz? But playing and understanding all these fancy chords seemed hard for you?
The Jazz Chord Base is a system to accompany jazz tunes in a way that will let you understand the chords quick and easy. The course is filled with explanations of the chords, many exercises and every once in a while Stefan tells funny stories of his life as a musician.
Learn the structure of chords, understand how they are developed and then practise them with the many exercises. All the exercises are demonstrated on video, include the lead sheets and come with files to use in iRealBook (an app (not included in the course) that plays a band on your computer with bass, drums and piano in your desired practising tempo). And if you don’t own iRealPro: each exercise has an audiofile for download to play along.
Learn to find your way on the fretboard in a logical system and start playing these cool jazz chords from the scratch.
Completing the course will make you a great accompanist either as a single player with a singer/soloist or in a band. Also included is: Playing Chord solos and playing with a conductor.
