Randy Johnston takes you through 8 sets of Jazz Blues Changes and more in this class.
One set at a time, he clearly demonstrates the changes and voicings, then plays a chorus with the chords at a medium tempo. Then Randy plays a solo adhering to these changes, while you can comp if you like, and then he comps for a chorus so you can solo to these changes.
The changes and voicings for each set are written out including block diagrams. In addition, he explains other variations and substitutions, as well as some example lines he is playing over the changes.
While this class is mostly on the changes, the topics related to soloing that Randy touches on include voice leading and tetrachords. Most of Randy’s solos are in eighth-notes at a medium tempo with a very good view of the fingerboard and his finger placement. While they are not transcribed, they are easy to see and transcribe if you like, or just to hear examples and/or get ideas when it comes your turn to solo.
