Tip of the
Week

I took a break last week as my hands needed a rest after replacing floorboards in my living room. But I’m back!

In this lesson we look at Wes’ 4th Chorus in which he just plays octaves. It’s a cool sound and one that screams Wes. I unpack it here and give you some exercises so you can get it into your playing.

Tip of the
Week

Today I start a new series on a track by the iconic guitarist Wes Montgomery from the seminal LP ‘Incredible Jazz Guitar’.

A jazz blues is a must know format and one well worth spending some time practicing.

In this episode we look at what a jazz blues is, how to play it and how to play Wes style octaves with the quintessential right hand thumb technique.

The ES-335 is back!

This week we look at something called ‘Outside’ playing. 

No that is not taking your guitar into the garden and playing ‘Wonderwall’ as your neighbours cat adoringly looks on. This is actually where we play all of the ‘wrong notes’ in order to create more of a tension to then satisfyingly resolve in our solos. 

This is not a new concept. All music is full of tension and resolve. Otherwise it would be boring to listen to and without depth. Listen to ‘Toccata and Fugue in D Minor’ by J.S Bach and listen to that crazy diminished chord that he builds up, and this was meant to be played in church! Or that huge build up at the end of ‘Day In The Life’ by The Beatles.

Life has plenty of tension and music is sometimes a reflection and/or expression of the struggles of life so it is fitting that music is filled with tension.

In jazz I would argue this tension is slightly more accentuated than say in Mr. Brightside or ‘Shake It Off’ but they both have their moments. ‘Shake It Off” stays on one chord for a heck of a long time, that is tense! 

In this lesson I help you to understand some of the more common tension devices and concepts in jazz and blues to use in your own playing.
