Applications of Triad Motion Studies Inspired by George Van Eps Class Content | Steve Herberman
I often get requests to demonstrate how Van Eps’ triad studies in Harmonic Mechanism’s can be applied to comping and soloing as well as chord/melody. In this masterclass we’ll see how his multi-line triadic approach can add depth and interest to triads and upper structure triads. If you’ve never worked through Van Eps’ books than this class could be a real eye-opener. If you’ve checked out Harmonic Mechanisms and need a fresh look at how to put the concepts into practical use over tunes than don’t miss this masterclass!

Chord melody arranging & soloing inspired by George Van Eps Class Content | Steve Herberman
Utilizing ideas for voice motion and chord substitution inspired by George van Eps, Steve will take the often played “Autumn Leaves” and send out a chord melody arrangement in the Van Eps style. Discussions of techniques used and full explanations of the entire arrangement will be given.As usual all questions will be answered on the spot! To encourage early registration Steve will include a bonus arrangement of “Autumn Leaves” arranged in 2 part counterpoint that will demonstrate soloing above a half note bassline and also a melody line. The former helps deal with the question “After I play the head, now what?” Improvising chord melody can be one of the most gratifying of endeavors. It kept George Van Eps playing steadily into his 80’s!

Motion and Chord Voicings – Part I Class Content | Steve Herberman
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!

Motion and Chord Voicings – Part II Class Content | Steve Herberman
George Van Eps used to say that “Guitarists put too damn many notes in their chords.” In this class we’ll heed the maestro’s advice and examine 10th intervals with a moving inner line. Also, we’ll look at other intervals such as 6th’s and 12th’s with inner line motion and apply these to a progression. Exercises outlining these principles will be provided, allowing you to become more familiar with the techniques necessary to play these smoothly. It’s a refreshing approach to enhance your chord melody playing.
