Soli for Guitar

A soli is a composed/arranged improvisation based on the harmonic structure and form of a musical composition. The most common use of a soli is found within a big band arrangement as a variation of the head. Although a soli is based on the harmonic structure of a piece, there is plenty of creative room for re-harmonization.

“Soli for Guitar” is basically composing a chord melody variation over a musical composition. In this master class example, I will be showing and explaining my soli over the Clifford Brown composition, Joy Spring.

I strongly suggest learning this tune in order to fully comprehend the harmonic treatment I incorporate in this soli. I will include the chart of the basic harmonic structure of Joy Spring and, in the master class video, explain everything I am altering with each chord voicing.

It is my belief that creating a soli on guitar is a great way to increase harmonic vocabulary as well as developing fluidity in spontaneous chord soloing.

Included in the class:
1) The 50 minute video
2) A PDF chart of my Soli in notation and chord symbols
3) A PDF of the original chart of Joy Spring
