Confused About Jazz?
Welcome to the club! One of the main purposes in creating the GVJS series was to provide an "oasis" for aspiring jazz players who are serious but often frustrated by their lack of success. This is typically due to the unnecessary over-mentalization of the genre.
Use it as a "road map" to analyze the GVJS solos, your transcriptions, or other solos. Need more? Please enjoy the following mp3 narratives on critical issues for jazz improvisers:
|Controlling Your Destiny: Work Ethic vs "Natural" Talent||The Importance of Learning from Other Instrumentalists|
|"Real World" Core Language vs Scales, Modes, & Arpeggios||Focus On: "The Ultimate Practice Advice" for Any Musician|
Note: Do not make the mistake of taking this path advice lightly! It is based on over 35 years of studying great artists, then sharing their knowledge while successfully coaching others, and it can save you thousands of dollars and years of time wasted going around in circles.
