After chatting with a couple of you we have decided to do Misty as our december challenge. For those interested there is a version in ''the vault''. Once again thank you to those who posted ''blue bossa'' and it's never too late to post one of our challenges... the deadline is just to push us a little.
Hey guys -- the Quickstart lessons are *live* on Skool here: https://www.skool.com/jazz-guitar-fellowship/classroom/dd957b5c?md=b5f3aa12518c481398acae1030d7c1be Please watch the trainings, take notes, and get ready to have amazing results in your playing! Once your done, please leave a comment below to consider this "Action as Complete" 🎸
80% handling arpegio on Misty. I followed the chords I chose before. The greatest aspect is that they are quite easy to memorize. They follow the chords positions. I found the notes for each of them by only listening, instead of counting and calculating. Next will be to add the middle notes for each of them to get the scales.
After I said that I was buying a Yamaha Silent Guitar SLG200S and a Borsi humbucker pickup system to go with it, some members expressed interest. Here are my views. The Borsi pickup system is produced in Hungary, replaces the scratch plate on the SLG200S, and it is completely non-destructive and restorable. It is necessary to unscrew and remove the right frame, and this is a little fiddly but not too difficult. When fitting the Borsi, it is a good idea to have the instructions to hand – there are a couple of processes that are not obvious. The Borsi requires a right angle plug because the frame obstructs a straight plug; this is a minor inconvenience. There is a three-position pickup selector, as well as a volume and tone control. The neck and bridge pickups are thin to fit under the strings, and there are no pole piece adjustments. This is what I like about the SLG200S/Borsi system: It is compact and can fit easily in a wardrobe, it is light - 2.2 kg or 4.8 lbs, it is quiet although not exactly silent, the SLG200S has an inbuilt tuner and headphone socket, headphone output from the Borsi can be achieved with a headphone amp such as the Vox Clean headphone amp, and the SLG200S is less susceptible to temperature and humidity variations than, say, archtops. What I don’t like about the system is that the unwound treble strings sound ‘tinny’ and rather thin. Actually, the Borsi makes the wound strings sound more mellow, but not the unwound strings, so the trebles sound lacking by comparison. I have achieved some improvement by reducing gain at 4 kHz using my Katana’s parametric e.q., but I’m still not completely happy with the sound. My current view is that this system is great for practice, but not so much for performance, at least for jazz. It may be fine for genres that have more treble, but I don’t think I would take it to a jazz gig.
We've all been there: searching for a backing track here in YouTube; noodling and practicing aimlessly, maybe with a pentatonic scale. In this video, we'll discover how to , build a solid foundation, and implement effective soloing strategies. Resources HERE Watch here:
What scales can you use for each chord in a minor 2-5-1 progression? In this video, @Coach Marc-Andre Seguin will give you shortcuts on how you can go to the next chord, or destination, with these approaches using the modes of the melodic minor. Use these tips to spice things up in your improv, giving your playing a bit of "exotic" sound.
Today I started a practice routine following this 45 minute plan from the Vault library. (See attached link) 45 minutes goes fast! I think this routine will pair well with the 7 stages to learn a jazz standard. I definitely need structure!
