PART 2

This is a new series where we are learning the whole of Kenny Burrell’s ‘Midnight Blue’ from his 1963 album of the same name. There will be a new lesson every Saturday where we will learn another chorus from this excellent tune! And there will be TAB on screen!

In this lesson we look at the first chorus in the solo! This is full of easy jazz and blues licks which are ideal if you are getting started in jazz. We also look at how to navigate over a minor 2 – 5 – 1, how to play over dominant 7th chords, enclosure, outside playing and more! Phew!

I then give you some all important tips on how to use these devices in your solos.

Next week we will be looking at the 2nd chorus from the solo!

Whilst it’s been really difficult not out gigging I’ve used the time to really focus on my teaching as it’s something I’m really passionate about and want to improve. Although I hate being in front of a camera (I’m super self-conscious so editing is hard 😂)!

After someone in the comments on my YouTube channel suggested I play this tune (which is one of the first Jazz tunes I lusted after playing as a teen) I thought I’d do a whole lesson series on it. This week is the first week!

This week we learn the head and take a dive into the dorian scale, blues and jazz language, Van Morrison?! Chord melody and we talk gear and more! Phew!

If you like it and found it useful please consider giving it a thumbs up so others can find the video and/or subscribe (if you want to see more).

Bruno Major – Like Someone In Love 

Episode 1

This is the first of what will be quite a few (I’m not sure how many just yet!) episodes on this amazing track. 

We will be looking at the entire piece, not just the solo. So this will really help with your soloing technique and also your harmonic knowledge. 

The track was originally recorded by Chet Baker and Bruno Major has recorded this hip-hop influenced version of it on his 2017 album ‘A Song For Every Moon’. 

This Episode opens up the conversation on this piece and I’ve included a video of the solo. 

We’ll start looking at the solo next week but if you want to get a head start, to find my transcription of the solo head over here https://www.soundslice.com/slices/XTjVc/
