Want to Master Rhythm Changes? Here are Six Solos that You Should Know…
Here’s a question for you… Are you making the process of learning to play jazz standards harder than it has to be? …searching for answers in theory books, obsessing over scales, and turning your daily practice session into a soul-searching quest for your personal sound when you just want to be playing music? The thing is, learning to play a great solo doesn’t have to be overly abstract or even complicated. If you want to see results in the practice room, it comes down to something much more concrete: Find someone who sounds good and figure out what they’re doing. It’s as simple as that. The process is the same for learning to play over a single chord as it is for learning to navigate the progression to a jazz standard. And it’s the same for learning to create a great solo on Rhythm Changes.   So if you’re frustrated with your playing, stop guessing, stop worrying about hundreds of scales and stop mindlessly jamming for hours with a play-a-long track. With some key techniques ingrained from the right sources, you’ll go from scraping by in frustration to playing better than you ever could’ve imagined.  In today’s lesson we’ve taken 6 incredible solos from the masters and highlighted dozens of specific techniques that you can begin practicing today.  Ready to get started? Here we go… 1) Lester Young: Lester Leaps In Before you get obsessed with scales and before you start worrying about turnarounds or ii-V licks, … Read More Read related articles Jazz Is A Language….Or Is It?
