Hello fellow students,

In this new video lesson I’m talking about guitar technique, economy and sweep picking, two of my favorites.
For years practice technique on Jazz was like a sin, teachers didn’t teach it, even more, it was a subject with bad reputation.

In my opinion, it’s very important, technique is not a goal in itself, if not a way to reach new musical standards.  Imagine that you want to play triplets or sixteen notes at bright tempos, you will need a good technique, so in this way you will be able to play the music that you listen in your head&heart. Now, if a famous bandleader call you, and his music is intricate, with complex melodies, (like bebop or fusion melodies), again with a cool technique you will be more confident and comfortable to play it.

And, perhaps, with a great guitar command you can compose music with other possibilities.

Hope you find this lesson inspiring and useful.

Good luck!! keep going forward.

  1. Economy and Sweep Picking


    Excellent class. The best explanation of economy picking I have seen yet. My only knock is that it would have been easier to hear the techniques better with a fully clean sound, no effects pedals.
