  • Hey this is Jad here, welcome to my first lesson as an instructor at GMC. In today's lesson, I'm going to introduce you to Jazz manouche, if you like this style of music, you can check out many manouche players like Angello Debarre,Stochelo Rosenberg, Biréli Lagrène and many others.

    Jazz manouche is based on triads, so it's really important to master them if you want to compose or improvise in the style. Now since there's load of triads, we can't learn them all, so we'll focus only on the minor triad and the major triad. Once you've mastered these triads, you can easily add colorations or voicings to make your sound more interesting.

    In this lesson, you'll find :
    - Horizontal arpeggios
    - Diminished arpeggios played over dominant chords
    - Bitonal arpeggios
    - Chromatism

    You'll also find a key modulation, we're starting in the key of G Major, then we modulate to A minor, and then go back to the G Major key. But we'll talk about that later (in the second part) let's focus first on our arpeggios.

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask them.

    Hope you enjoy my lesson and see you at the forum.
