” My seventh master class offering,  I cover many guitar rhythms that I have developed over my years of playing various genres of music using my own personal right hand guitar techniques that combine the use of a pick and/or fingers.

This 104 minute video is broken up into multiple segments – each focusing on a particular style of playing. Each segment begins with a short melodic improvisation over a particular style, followed by a detailed explanation of the rhythmic technique used.  The segment listing are as follows:
1) Introduction
2) Jazz Waltz
3) Basic Samba
4) Up Tempo Swing
5) Slow Samba
6) Medium Swing
7) Fast Samba
8) Funky Swing
9) Ballad

The following tunes are used to demonstrate techniques:

  • “When Sonny Gets Blue”
  • “Triste”
  • “Satin Doll”
  • “Estate”
  • “Walkin’ the Dos”
  • “Blusette”
  • “Along Came Betty” by Benny Golson

The materials included are:
1) MP3 loops of each example to practice with or solo over
2) PDF files of all the chord changes used in this video
