Hello all, I've been retired for several years and getting back into music after many decades of listening and not playing. I've been trying to learn guitar off and on for many years (mostly off.) Hoping that being part of an active community will help keep me on track to follow through. We're in the middle of moving from our home of 31 years to two separate locations, one out of the country, so the next few months or so will be a little hectic and inconsistent.
I play a lot of gigs that have nothing to do jazz, so a lot of my time is spent preparing for those gigs (learning new tunes, reviewing old tunes, transcribing solos etc). So I think I will keep the practice spreadsheet for jazz only. I was thinking if I find it useful I can alway make a second copy for all the other stuff and track my progress for that as well. What do others do? Thanks Mark
I just sliced the tip of my left hand index finger cooking supper. It took about half an hour to stop it bleeding. My left hand is completely immobilised because I don’t want it start bleeding again so there goes my guitar playing for the next few days. It’s a bit of a bummer because I was progressing very nicely with my rubato version of All The Things You Are. ☹️
Francophone du Québec, j'aime ma langue et je préfère écrire en français. Salut tout le monde. Je viens ici par curiosité et envie d'en apprendre un peu plus à la guitare pour lâcher la pentatonique 😂 Quoique j'y rajoute toujours beaucoup de chromatismes qui font que ce n'est pas vraiment du blues...😀
I have been at member of Jazz Mastery course since it began. I am retired and have had the time and space to pursue this in a continuous manner. I have learned a lot so far and have another long way to go. Presently spending some time in comping 103 with rootless chords learning and internalizing their structure and derivation so that I may seek them out in various keys/areas and go beyond recognition to full utility. Working song Beatrice Pro. Also recently enamored of I Can't Get Started from Barry Galbraith book of guitar solos. Rationale for all of this a- it makes me happy each time I do it b - and also because of the enlightenment this study provides.
Hi , Steve from Seattle.Primarily interested in chord melody style solo guitar, ie Sinatra songbook.Current goal is about 20 songs to play at my daughters Wedding in August 2024. Prob use my Tele but have an old Epi Regent as well. Looking forward to getting to know this wonderful community of Guitarists. Thanks
I love music of all sorts. I've always been drawn to jazz for some reason.I like Western swing (Whit Smith), jazz blues (Duke Robillard, Herb Ellis and Tiny Grimes), and The Dead (Jerry Garcia who is a pretty good jazz player amongst other guitar stuff). Looking forward to learning and having fun!
A couple of month ago i had posted that i was looking for an amp. I would like to thank everyone for their feedback. I finally decided to buy the Fender Tone master Deluxe Reverb. When i tried it with my guitar right next to the tube version i couldn't hear the difference. I'm so happy with my purchase. Hopefully you'll hear it soon... i just need to be able to play Donna Lee!
Lee, we all start the same way: fumbling, fighting sausage fingers, feeling like we’ll never get it and being intimidated by everyone else. Don’t compare yourself to others, only to how you were yesterday—that’s the important metric. Sometimes you will make rapid progress, sometimes you will plateau, and sometimes feel like you’re regressing. Just keep working at it and take satisfaction in that you’re learning something something a lot of people only dream of doing.
Hi everyone. Good to be part of the fellowship! I hope to learn a lot and to get to know some of you maybe. Got into jazz because I like the more complex harmonies after coming from mainly rock music. Have followed Marc for a while and like his teaching style and guitar playing.
Hey everyone! I'm Marko and I come from Croatia! Last year I decided I wanted to dive deeper into music theory and develop my skills. I've played on and off for a number of years but never took the time to thoroughly go through all the basics. I've also loved and listened various jazz artist but probably gypsy jazz the most during the years, and now I actually want to learn more and start applying it to finally play jazz myself!
