John Scofield – Jazz-Funk Guitar Volume 2
Dec 22 2013
On Jazz-Funk Guitar 2, John covers the compositional aspect of his style as he analyzes the songs performed on this tape and reveals the correct chord voicings and melody lines. Using his own tunes, John goes over concepts such as chromaticism, form, contour, voice-leading, pedal tones, and contrary motion. Songs include: Blue Matter, The Nag, Still Warm, Trim, Time Marches On.
For those familiar with John’s “Blue Matter” jazz/funk period, this DVD and Jazz Funk Guitar II are a must. It’s very hard to create a video lesson that’s going to work for an individual, and Scofield is best when he’s in the driver’s seat (not the case here as this is in more of an interview format). The chemistry between the members of this band is amazing, and you can learn a lot from just watching that. Every drummer and bassist should check out Gary Grainger and Dennis Chambers here too – perhaps the funkiest rhythm section to have ever existed!
