Podcast #42 - How To Practice Jazz Guitar Licks

For a jazz guitarist, learning licks is the equivalent to learning phrases in a language. However, it can often feel quite forced to use new licks in a solo - after all, aren't you supposed to be improvising?! This podcast will help clarify things by giving you a method to practice jazz guitar licks, the right way. Marc takes a classic lick and runs it through his patented Jazz Guitar Assimilation Machine... you'll be amazed by what comes out!

Podcast #42 - How To Practice Jazz Guitar Licks

Podcast #40 - Quartal Harmony and Fourths Voicings for Jazz Guitar

In this episode we decipher the whole mysticism behind "voicings in fourths", also called quartal harmony. The first few voicings on Miles Davis' "So What" immediately come to mind when think about quartal chords. In the first part of the podcast, we'll discuss voicings built in fourths "under" all the notes of the C major scale, as their top notes ... and learn how to create so-called "quartal inversions" of those. In the second part of the podcast, we'll discuss real world applications for chords such as Cm7, C7 and Cmaj7(#11) ... all using quartal-based chord voicings. The original videos and sheet music are found here: https://www.jazzguitarlessons.net/blog/quartal-harmony-for-jazz-guitar

Podcast #35 - Using Big Scales to Unlock the Fretboard

In this podcast, we'll look into an exercise that is relatively simple in concept, but that can go very deep (as far as helping you become a better improviser). The "big scales" exercise, so-called, deals with the entire range of the instrument. Start low, cover all the notes, climb all the way up. Then come back down! I challenge you to apply some big scales to your own favorite standard progression. See if you can keep playing the "right" scale (and change scales at the appropriate time) while your line keeps ascending/descending in the same direction. This is hard. You've been warned! :-) This podcast originally appeared on the blog here: https://www.jazzguitarlessons.net/blog/podcast-35-using-big-scales-unlock-fretboard

Podcast #33 - Written Studies (versus bits and pieces)

As jazzers, we're often culprit of only learning "bits and pieces" of the stuff we learn. A scale, an arpeggio, a few licks (etc.), and off we go improvising. In this podcast, we discuss the relevance of learning actual "pieces" of music (or studies). Enjoy!
