Jazz Chord Solos for Beginners by Fred Sokolow. For Guitar (All). Boxed, Solos. Grossman Guitar Workshop. Jazz. Beginning-Intermediate. DVD. Duration 110 minutes. Published by Grossman's Guitar Workshop (MB.GW411DVD).
If you love old standards like Georgia On My Mind and Ain't Misbehavin' but always thought that only advanced guitarists could play jazz, you'll love Fred's easy-to-play jazz chord solos. In this DVD, you'll learn six timeless tunes from start to finish: how to play backup while you sing them, and how to play a beautiful chord-melody solo/instrumental for each song. The tunes are arranged for beginners. There are no difficult chords, and Fred goes over the tricky spots in each tune before playing it. Then you'll watch him replay the song, slower, on a split screen with close-ups of both hands. Just for fun, Fred includes the rarely heard introductory verses to three of the songs. Best of all, you can read all six arrangements (tablature, music, chord grids, and lyrics) in the booklet that comes with this DVD. Chord soloing (playing the melody and chords at the same time) is a very complete and satisfying guitar style. This lesson will get you started and Fred's relaxed teaching style makes it easy. A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. 110 minutes.
