Topic: Learn "Silent Night" and Open Talk

 

 

You can watch the lesson here... HERE.

 

Hello all, sorry about the late notice regarding tonight's live lesson but I've been on a short Christmas tour for the last 6 days.  Just got back this morning after 8 shows in 6 days.  I'm pretty wiped out but I wanted to have a live lesson tonight.

 

I'll be showing a couple of versions of "Silent Night" and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and we'll be having an open talk.

 

Here is the music for "Silent Night"

Looking forward to seeing you all tonight.

Giveaways and more! Make plans to join your guitar family on Dec 13th at 7pm (central). Bring your questions and I'll see you there!

Hi Steve;

Glad your back safe and sound! (pun intended )

 

I've been working on the basic 2 -5-1 Jazz progression in various keys,  I  have memorized about 10 basic jazz chords.(ii-m7, V -9/9m, V - 13/13m , I - Maj7 , 1 - Maj 76/9 etc)  I'd like to play some songs to hone my skills.

 

I'm aware of "THE REAL BOOK" and sure it's a great thing to have; BUT

 

Question; 

 

... I'm wondering if you could please recommend (or supply ) a much smaller (and less expensive) resource of "SIMPLE ® "JAZZ SONGS to learn with? 

 

Thanks in advance;

All the Best!! 

Neil

Yes, I will try to cover all of the major Jazz Chords that I use in my professional playing.

 

It should be a good course!

My experience is that simple and jazz don't go together.  :biggrin:

 

JazzyBeatle used to recommend  Jazz Guitar forum  as they have beginners lessons and a Jazz Standard of the month lesson/contest. Look to the "getting started" and the "jazzguitar.be lessons" sub forums and you might find some ideas on a good book or two. If you sign up for the mail list Dirk and Matt will send you lessons that they post to their blog periodically. A lot of them seem to be suitable for beginner jazz guitarists.

 

I hope that helps.
