    Using C dominant and its related parent minor as a core concept, Jay brings us through an assortment of ideas for generating hip dominant lines.

    Superimposed triads, sideslipping and various other inside/outside concepts are also covered and presented in an easy-to-understand manner. Most importantly, many of the licks are transcribed in the accompanying class materials in jpg format so you can print them out and work on them away from the computer.

    It would help to have a pencil and notepad handy to make notes as you watch this video. There’s a wealth of great substitution ideas here!

    And did I mention that Jay’s playing is absolutely killin’?

    This is a very well presented great class. Jay gives examples of linear and triadic phrases over dom7 chords all over the neck of the guitar. I highly recommend.

    Jay Umble er en ekstremt dyktig og raus lærer og litt av en personlighet. Og har du sansen for det han kaller moderne sound, sÃ¥ er hans kurs det du trenger. Han har ogsÃ¥ skrevet flere lærebøker. Boka "Payin’ Your Dues With The Blues" (MBGU Jazz Curriculum) er det beste jeg har sett pÃ¥ jazzblueskomping. Kan du akkordene dine, sÃ¥ kan du spille igjennom den pÃ¥ en dag. Et must!

    This course covers the same material I am working on with my teacher. The concepts Jay provided augmented my regular lesson material in a very helpful way. Jay has a knack for explaining complex musical ideas in a way that enabled me to fit them into my own approach without that feeling of just copying someone else’s ideas. He gives away everything. Very highly recommended.
