  • Hi GMC'ers! Welcome to a new lesson. In this opportunity we'll explore the traditional jazz style and we'll be playing a whole solo with chords. This particular style of soloing has a connection with the kind of solo that a Banjo player would play. In the traditional jazz or Dixieland style there wasn't a guitar player but a Banjo player and this instrument used to play solos with chords rather than lone notes. So this lesson is about that style.
    Many players used to explore this kind of style: Barney Kessell, Bucky Pizzarelli, John Pizzarelli, Frank Vignola, Scotty Anderson among others.

    The harmony of this lesson is:

    C7 – F6- C7- F6- D7- Gm7- Bbm7- B°7- F6- D7- G7- C7.

    I hope you enjoy playing the lesson as much I've enjoyed to making it!

    If you have any questions don't doubt to post them on my personal board.
