Emily Remler – Advanced Jazz And Latin Improvisation
Apr 08 2016
This hour-long video with Emily Remler covers some of jazz guitar’s most important topics, such as true Bossa nova style, samba rhythms, unique chord positions, alternating bass lines, syncopated guitar parts, passing chords, jazz minor scales, arpeggio licks, learning to put various scales over certain chords, eighth-note improvisation, II-V progressions and V-I resolutions.
There are more musical examples in this DVD, with plenty of licks and a clear explanation given for playing over ‘Type 1’ and ‘Type 2’ dominants; play Melodic minor from 5th for Type 1 (non-resolving) and play Melodic minor up half step for Type 2 (resolving). Some of you will know this is same as Lydian-Dominant and Altered, but Emily gives great explanations of 9 and 13 natural tensions, #11 spice and avoiding ‘whitebread’ sound by not starting on root. In this video, you first learn the CORRECT way to play bossa nova and samba rhythm.
