Jeff Newman - C6th & Swinging - Parts 1 & 2
Tab Books, CD & DVDs
Intermediate to Advanced
Part 1 - Two hours of DVD, Tab Book and Rhythm Tracks on CD
This course is about getting serious on the C6th tuning learning to play some legitimate blues and swing scales along with chord progressions. This course takes up where the 'C6th Workshop" left off. This part deals with the single note "pockets" we use all over the neck to play against all sorts of chords in swing tunes. You will learn to see the pockets and how to move them around as the chords change in the tune. Tricky camera work lets you see the pockets melt from one chord into another the way you will see them for yourself with a lot of practice. Jeff makes a seemingly hard subject look easy in this course.
Part 2 - Two hours of DVD, Tab Book and Rhythm Tracks on CD
As a follow-up to Part 1, we take songs like San Antonio Rose, and Sweet Georgia Brown & dissect them into chord progressions. Then, we learn to move the single notes of the pockets around to improvise over this chord progression.
Included are seven intros on the C6th for San Antonio Rose, a swing instrumental for it, and four swing endings you can put to any tune. Find the melody in big fat chords, plus some nice fills with a singer.
A fun course that will improve your C6th playing, but will influence your E9th playing as well.
Jeff goes into detail about the number system for the C6th and how important it is to learn to think and play it.
