Jake Willson - Creative Chromatics
Jake Willson Creative Chromatics Boxset. Become a master of chromatics as we teach you everything you need to know to start earning your stripes as a seasoned fusion pro!
Being in total control of your ability to create tension and release is a fundamental skill of all great sounding contemporary guitar players. Throughout this three-part masterclass course we'll be showing you how to build up that control so that you can apply it at the perfect moment to add more depth and interest to your musical lines. You'll achieve this by learning how to combine chromatic pathways and embellishments with creative fusion ideas to smoothly transition between inside and outside playing within your lines.
In each volume you'll find comprehensive PDF lesson documents teaching you the concepts in detail, exercises for you to study and drill in order to memorize the material, example licks to bring things into the musical world with practical applications for your own licks and full solos to show you how everything fits together to create incredible full solos filled with inspirational chromatic ideas! Everything in these three volumes has been specifically designed to help guide you through the process of slowly internalizing and mastering the chromatic concepts you need to know the most!
We strongly recommend picking up the complete box set which comes with all three volumes together for a discounted price, but each one is available on it's own by clicking 'Buying Options' above. Here's what you can expect in each volume:
Beginner: In this volume we'll give you an introduction to the chromatic scale and discuss the fundamentals such as passing notes and approach notes. The material in this volume will also provide you with basic finder independence work to get your fingers moving at will. There are also 9 beginner chromatic exercises, 14 chromatic licks and a full beginner solo to pull everything together!
Intermediate: This is where we take a more in-depth look at the various chromatic tricks commonly used by the greats such as neighbor notes, enclosures and side-stepping. The difficulty of the material in this volume is going to provide you with slightly more challenging finger exercises to help build up your finger independence and dexterity. During the course we'll be learning 12 intermediate chromatic exercises, 14 chromatic licks and a full intermediate solo.
Advanced: In this final challenge we'll be taking things to the next level with more technically demanding playing requiring you to build greater finger dexterity as we look at more advanced subjects such as chromatic sequencing! You'll also find 15 advanced chromatic exercises (all of which come with their own technical explanations), 10 advanced chromatic licks and a full advanced solo as your final test!
So if chromatic soloing has ever seemed like an exotic far out 'trick' reserved just for the fusion-elite to you, just know that not only is it well within your reach, but if you follow our three-part course you'll be soon using it in your everyday solos to create moments of intense tension and release combined with spicy sounding outside phrases too!
As ever, we have included everything you need to practice and perfect the material in this package. There are video and audio tracks for you to watch/listen and study, accurately transcribed TAB/notation for you to analyse and master, and backing tracks for everything!
