Tom Dempsey - 50 Jazz Master Licks You Must Know
Jazz guitar is NOT about playing licks, far from it. Jazz is spontaneous, creative, original and a highly improvisational art form. Great jazz solos tell stories that shed tears, spark smiles and stop time. You'll spend countless disciplined years in the shed learning the language of jazz guitar and how to tell those stories in your own voice. Imitating, understanding and internalizing the vocabulary of the masters is an essential rite of passage for EVERY jazz guitarist. Getting a grip on the vernacular of jazz guitar empowers you to craft your own original lines and dialect.
Tom dug deep, wide and very selectively to take you on this learning adventure across the fretboards of such jazz guitar luminaries as Charlie Christian, Django Reinhardt, Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Tal Farlow, Barney Kessel, George Benson, Grant Green, Pat Martino, John Abercrombie, John Scofield, Pat Metheny and many more. You'll learn 50 highly versatile licks influenced by the music of these masters. Tom will also demonstrate how to apply the material in your own improvisations so that you can put the lines to work immediately.
All of the licks are presented over a rhythm track for context and then followed by a detailed breakdown of the line along with the techniques being employed to perform it. Everything is tabbed and notated, plus you get all of the rhythm tracks to practice the lines over by yourself.
