“My goal in this Master Class is show my own investigations and variations on Jimmy Wyble’s concept, called Two line improvisation.  In this video you will see Hybrid Picking, Contrapuntal Scales, Chord Fragments, Intervalic Improvisation, Counterpoint Ideas and more.  These concepts are applied to jazz blues and famous standards.  You will be introduced to an original musical world with plenty of new ideas, really interesting for playing solo jazz guitar or in a jazz combo.  Also, you will expand your harmonic vocabulary.  The clinic is great for beginning to look at the guitar in a completely new way.”

Class includes written materials in standard notation and TAB.

    I knew nothing about this gentleman, but any disciple of Jimmy Wyble is OK by me. I was very surprised to find that he has a very, very different way to get to the same ideas that I have been studying under David Oakes and Steve Herberman. His method and approach to communicating are very refreshing, understandable, and basic enough that you don’t have to be an advanced player to grasp his concepts. My only suggestion would be to have another guitar or bass accompany him, to ground the harmony for "less sophisticated" listeners, as his fragment, while based on the underlying harmony, tend to take the sound pretty far out. Highly recommended.
