Hi Alex smile.gif
Recently I've started to listen to a lot of jazz and I just fell in love with it, so I want to play jazz myself. My goals are to learn jazz theory, freely improvise using modes, arpeggios, intervals and so on and to compose my own music smile.gif
Well, in my opinion my playing is good enough, but theory still needs some work. Not to say I'm bad at theory, but I'm not satisfied with my improvisation, as I can't use theory freely.
Regarding the strongest point, it is easy for me to come up with a melody smile.gif
At the moment my favorites are: George Benson, John Scofield, Guthrie Govan and Carlos Santana.

Great! I like the same players as you are!!!
Nice tasty guitarists!
Playing jazz is not as complicated as it might seem!
If you will simplify it you will end up with II-V-I chord progressions!
So as they say: "If you want to learn jazz, learn to play over II-V-I"
That's what we will be working on!
I have a cool chord progression for you
It's Emi7 - A7 -Dmaj7
Here it is!
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/ii-v-i-jam
In order to play over chord changes you need to learn how to play chord tones!
Chord tones:
If you will analyze a chord you will have notes that this chord is made of
those are the chord tones!
I will give you an example:
E minor 7
E - G -B - D
The most important chord tones are III and VII because that's how you can tell the difference between major and minor chord and also know what kind of VII is there!
In our case it's G and D
So what I want you to do is first to analyze each chord and find III and VII for each of them!
Please post it here and I will show an exercise that you can do to practice your chord tones!

Hi Alex! I'm really really sorry for such a huge delay, I've had busy weeks, but know I have more free time. Here is my video:

It is not at 100 bpm, as 100 bpm is too fast for me at the moment.

You did a very good job with this exercise! I would suggest to use alternative picking and there is no click, it does sound like your timing is good tho!
Let me know if you ready for a new assignment or still need more time to practice this exercise?

Perfect! So now when you know about the chord tones we can start applying it to your playing!
We still have the same chord progression
E mi7 - A7 - Dmaj7
So let's do that:
First time through
E minor pentatonic over E mi7
D major Pentatonic over A 7
B minor pentatonic over D maj7

Second time through:
E minor Dorian over E mi7
A minor pentatonic over A7
D major scale over Dmaj7


You are free to use any shapes you want
If you need help please let me know!

You don't have to write a solo I want you to play over the backing track using pentatonic and scales that I suggested
It's a good exercise to start playing over the changes!
I just want you to jam but also think every time the chord is changing!

Hi! Here is the backing track!
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/ii-v-i-jam
I posted before and for now we will stick with it in a few weeks I will give you a new one smile.gif
The chord changes are:
Emi7 - A7 - Dmaj7
You have mentioned that you would like to play A mixolydian b6 you can use it if you like!
But mainly I would like you to stick with the pentatonics!
Let me know if you have any questions!
