Haven't seen much singing posts, but this time i share this song that is constantly in my set. The backing track its based and in the tonality of the original version by Celso Piña, kind of a bolero, with the intro melody, originally played by a trombone, and some guitar ideas taken from another version by Enrique Bunbury. It's a beautiful lyric with a even more beautiful harmony and i enjoy a lot playing it. Tell me what you think!... not about the bad singing, that i already know XD If somebody wants it, i can share the backing track recorded myself, playing all the instruments besides the percussion loop which is extracted from the Beat Buddy's library.

Recently, my grand-daughter asked me to accompany her for a coming school performance, which I regard as quite an honour. Apparently, her music teacher is comfortable with this. We first recorded the vocal and guitar parts, and I subsequently over-dubbed the guitar for the video. The timing is a little stilted in parts, because I had to ensure that the vocal would come back in at the right time after the guitar solo, and there was no metronome track (which I would have had difficulty sticking to in any case. This has been a work in progress, and some parts of the guitar have been cleaned up since the recording. https://youtu.be/tAdPJbabp9c
If you’re a guitarist and a lifelong lover of music looking to finally “crack” the jazz code, then continue reading… After helping 100s of students to make jazz guitar a walk in the park, and start improvising and comping convincingly… I was carefully documenting all the most common problems that they were experiencing… And based on that, I developed a step-by-step system that will without fail help people progress way faster with their jazz guitar playing, and avoid the most common pitfalls… I spent literally hundreds of hours just assembling the system in a document… And YEARS actually figuring it out… And, after keeping these secrets private for a few months… I decided to share it… I was thinking about the price it’s worth… But if you know me, you know that I’m not a huge advocate of selling information… In fact, I started to hate courses, memberships, and other crap. I can’t stand all the online gurus that are splitting hair, and not showing students how to play effing songs in the end… So even though this is much different and immensely more valuable than everything else… I decided to… Give it away. For free. $0. Why? You see… My belief is that every guitarist deserves to consistently see the progress in their playing… And be certain that he is practicing the right things that will eventually make him/her better… There isn’t a worse feeling than “running in place” for YEARS… And not having consistent progress and growth in proportion to the time that you put in… So I decided to give my best to help with that. And further on… I will start revealing all of my secrets for free. The first thing you’ll get is an extensive guide on how to improvise and comp on the jazz guitar CONVINCINGLY. If you would like to get it, just comment “guide” and I’ll personally send it to you.
Hello Jazz guitar fellowship! I just want to say how honored I am to be invited into this group. Thank y’all so much. I have been inspired by all the learners on this platform to put myself ‘out there’… thank y’all so much (I think :) Here are a couple of original compositions I wrote that I thought I would share as my video introduction. Do feel free to offer critique. I am very much a beginner in this jazz guitar world and would appreciate any feedback y’all may have. https://youtu.be/7BQiPlsjNPI https://youtu.be/RoUjGu5F9Hg
@Mentor Marc-Andre Labelle Thanks Marc-Andre! I feel like the 'bones' of the songs are there but my timing and phrasing could use a lot of improvement. Maybe, if I were to play with a swing beat that would help. Stay tuned :)
Hello all , I'm in Canada the great white north . Looking to learn a bit about jazz guitar . I'm a closet musician . Work and lack of opportunity makes for slow growth, but I'd rather it be slow then no growth . Lol . Peace , love and ban the bomb .
Been messing around with guitar for decades now at nearly 70 and retired thought I'd really like to learn some Jazz standards. Be nice to get a recognisable tune out of a guitar and keep my mind and fingers active, welcome all the help I can get and this group looks great.
I have played classical guitar for a few years. I was part of Classical Guitar Corner for the past 5, and I liked the fact that there was a structured curriculum. I was also part of Marc's online school, and I appreciated that he had organized the learning of jazz into a structured curriculum. i am currently working on the exercises that were part of Improv 101, and while I can play scales against a ii-V-I progression, they still just sound like scales. I am hoping to break through and make the leap to jazz in the near future.
Hi! This is Savaş from Turkey. As a blues/rock'n roll player I found myself very interested in jazz discipline lately to improve my perspective of play-style and finaly discover this wonderful platform. Have a nice day!
I found this chord progression this morning on a jazz guitar video from a YouTuber I follow. It's essentially a 251 into another 251 with connecting chords. Then I play a little Cmaj7 arpeggio lead at the end. I'm essentially copying what the YouTuber played, but getting myself familiar with these types of chord progressions and voicings. Let me know if I should work on anything or what to do next! As previously mentioned, I've been playing guitar most of my life but in hindsight I would not consider myself a good guitarist. Not fishing for compliments 😅. I can mainly play through a few songs or solos I looked the tabs up for, and/or play open chords along with a band, but I have no fundamentals or foundation.
Hello everyone! As a former member of Marc’s jazzguitarlessons.net site (a real in betweener) I am very happy to see this as kind of follow up to his awesome site. Currently (also by Marc’s recommendation on his blog) I am hooked by the teachings of Batty Harris for example his Classes in The Hague. So, yesterday, I was trying to match with his unisono challenges playing the blues! Cheers!
