Larry Carlton – Instructional DVD For Guitar
Apr 29 2014
One of today’s most influential jazz-rock guitarists, Grammy-winner Larry Carlton puts his talent to work for you in two areas of specialization: Blues and Chord Substitution. The Blues section deals with imitation, theme development, extended phrasing, banding techniques, vibrato and solo construction. In the Chord Substitution section, Larry explains his trademark triad approach, starting with basic chord substitution and leading to extended triad-on-triad usage.
This is Larry’s exciting fusion sound, spelled-out, clarified and made accessible to any guitarist. All examples are clearly illustrated with substantial musical phrases and improvised solos. Exclusive live concert footage is provided throughout the DVD to demonstrate the use of Larry’s examples in a live band situation. The accompanying instructional booklet comes complete with easy-to-follow diagrams that correspond exactly to the DVD. For guitarists of any level.
If you are a mid level to advanced player and love jazz/blues guitar, then this is good video. Larry takes his years of expertise and advises on technique and his approach to music. Undoubtably he is one of the great masters of the instrument.
This is a great dvd for someone looking to pickup on the progressive jazz-rock fusion style of Larry Carlton. His unique guitar style and sound have helped to shape this genre of music. This is very accessible to any guitar player.
On this session Larry comes across as personable, yet intense. Wolf Marshall has tabbed out alot of the session but not everything. He shows you super arpeggios and a bit of his triadic approach to jazz/blues soloing. Larry is an immensely gifted guitarist.
Larry’s teaching approach is excellent and clear, and of course his playing is stellar. But it is the simple tips that he offers that expands one’s vocabulary in areas such as creating a more “jazz” like sound while sticking close to the pentatonic scales, licks, and simple triad arpeggios that we have played from the beginning (as opposed to completely transforming one’s mental approach to the instrument – which one can do with Frank Gambale’s more modal approach).
