Join Tony DeCaprio for a special master class on the blues; jazz/blues.  Tony will reveal elements in jazz/blues playing that are often overlooked and sparsely taught; namely the V7 chord coming home to the I7 chord and the VI7 chord going into the secondary dominant before the turnaround.  He will also address the turnarounds, offering the player ‘line savvy’ and a sense of cadence as opposed to no more playing stock licks that usually cover the chord changes in a superficial manner.  In addition, Tony will show how to go about developing a ‘story’ in blues playing rather than relying on absolute mimicry or simply stringing licks together.  Learn how to tell your own story within the blues, in any key desired, using his hands-on approach.  Along with an after class video copy, you simply can’t miss!

    Please don’t sing- for one thing you don’t sing well, and secondly it throws off the listener. You can’t really hear the line as it is played.
