Joe Pass always talked about the importance of motion as it pertains to solo guitar. In this Master Class, Steve illustrates techniques to create motion using common chord forms. You and he will begin with triads and create lines in parallel and contrary motion while maintaining some common chord tones. After examining many kinds of voice motion within one chord, you’ll apply these concepts to a progression. This is in essence what the George Van Eps volumes were all about: looking at chords as several voices forging ahead over time to arrive at familiar destinations along the way. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to discover many new shapes getting from one chord form to another by sending the voices in motion. Steve will also show the application of these principles over familiar standard tunes. You will never look at those chord forms the same way!
