Sheryl Bailey - 50 Essential Bebop Guitar Licks You Must Know! - DVD
Top recording artist, educator, composer, and monster jazz guitarist Sheryl Bailey dug wide and deep into the bebop soundscape to select the lines and approaches that comprise this essential vocabulary of bebop phrases. You'll learn lines inspired by bebop giants such as Charlie Parker, Joe Viola, Joe Pass, John Coltrane, Pat Martino, Sonny Stitt, Cannonball Adderley, Mike Stern, Dizzy Gillespie, Peter Bernstein, and many others! Learning licks from your favorite bebop players is key to understanding the deeper harmonic nuances of the music. Organize your vocabulary of licks by harmonic situations and then plug them into your solos. In time, you'll uncover the harmonic and rhythmic shapes behind the licks and they'll become a part of your own musical language. That's when you'll really start improvising. As you work through these 50 essential lines, you'll learn to apply the legendary "I've Got A Banana" lick, minor 7th line cliche, chromatic below/diatonic above approach, bebop scales, use of repetition, chord substitutions, chromaticism, displaced rhythms, the 'micro-cosmic' bebop line, arpeggios, tensions, tritone sub V7, symmetrical diminished, whole tone scale, augmented triads, 3-note melodic embellishments, and many more bebop applications. All of the licks are presented over a rhythm track and then broken down note-by-note, technique-by-technique with a thorough explanation of the underlying harmony. Everything is tabbed and notated, plus you get all of the rhythm tracks to practice with by yourself. Guitar Lab's innovative learning systems employ a hands-on approach where students "plays" their way through the curriculum using learning tools such as PIP video, practice rhythm tracks, and interactive tab and notation, which allows the student to play along with the tab and notation, at any tempo, without change in pitch!

Mark Boling - Creative Comping Concepts For Jazz Guitar - Book and Online Audio
Pianists are the main sources of inspiration for new developments in jazz guitar comping. Yet guitarists have been slow to develop a comping vocabulary with harmonic sophistication, subtle voice leading and rhythmic flexibility on the level of the best contemporary pianists. This book seeks to remedy the situation by articulating a comping vocabulary in the context of six of the most often played tunes in jazz: 12-bar blues, rhythm changes, minor blues, a modal tune and a couple of standards. The comps include rhythms with forward motion, chords built in fourth intervals, parallel constant structure voicings, poly chords, slash chords, etc. The focus is on developing a contemporary approach to rhythm, phrasing, chord voicings, voice leading, chord substitution, and re-harmonization. The play-along online audio of the guitar comps with bass and drums helps get the sounds and rhythms in your ear. The theory of how the comping concepts are applied to the music is explained with ideas on how to use them creatively.

Lasse Johansson - Early Jazz For Fingerstyle Guitar - DVD
The ragtime and early jazz music pioneers during the first decades of the last century didn't know that the sounds they created would echo in the music that people loved for years to come. They started an American music tradition that is alive to this day. Many of the early jazz songs and of course classical ragtime often is played as piano music, with a steady left hand playing bass notes and chords together with the right hand playing a syncopated melody on top. This style of playing is very similar to the alternating bass style on the guitar. So these tunes easily lend themselves to a fingerstyle arrangement. With classical ragtime I approach arranging by transcribing the original piano sheet-music. The important thing is to find keys that suit the guitar and then decide what notes not to play since it is not technically possible to play all the notes in a piano score on the guitar. I like to play in keys that will give me the opportunity to use open strings in the bass while the melody moves up and down the neck. This is especially important since my aim is to make my arrangements not too difficult to play, so that the player can concentrate on the music instead of being too concerned with the technical aspects of his/her playing. The most important challenge though, is to make the tune sound like guitar music, not piano music played on the guitar. Songs include: "Ain't Misbehavin, Buddy Bolden Blues, Creole Belles - March & Two-Step, Dixie Jazz Band One-Step, Feeing My Way,Memphis Blues, Russian Rag". A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD.

Lonnie Johnson - The Guitar Of Lonnie Johnson - 2 DVD Set
Lonnie Johnson pioneered the single-string solo guitar styles that we are accustomed to hearing today in rock, blues and jazz music. He played with blues and jazz greats including Texas Alexander, Duke Ellingon, Louie Armstrong and Bessie Smith, and used the guitar as a solo instrument in jazz bands years before Charlie Christian. His recorded blues and jazz solos, including his famous duets with the early jazz guitarist Eddie Lang, are exemplary both for their incredibly beautiful guitar tone and for their sheer, jaw-dropping virtuosity. His "To Do This You Got To Know How" remains one of the most amazing guitar solos ever recorded. Although he was influential beyond measure, his reputation has lately taken a back seat to more famous blues players whose influence is often exaggerated as much as Johnson's is underestimated. In this double DVD set, the first devoted in its entirety to the guitar style of Lonnie Johnson, Ari Eisinger explores Lonnie Johnson's blues style in detail, presenting stylistic hallmarks of Johnson's playing including a discussion of left hand fingerings, use of diminished chords and Lonnie's blues playing in the Key of D. Ari teaches eight guitar breaks from some of Lonnie's best tunes. These include his instrumental masterpiece "To Do This You Got To Know How", his jazzy "Uncle Ned Don't Use Your Head", his evocative "Woke Up With the Blues In My Fingers" and "I'm So Tired Of Living All Alone", Lonnie's version of the song Skip James recorded as "I'm So Glad". The original old recordings of all the tunes are included as well.

John Jorgenson - Intro To Gypsy Jazz Guitar - Book, DVD & CD
In this 2-hour DVD lesson, Jorgenson provides the foundational information and practice material necessary for you to gain an understanding of the Gypsy jazz guitar style. The first half of this volume addresses the important element of Gypsy jazz rhythm. After discussing correct right hand rhythm technique, Jorgenson teaches the closed chord forms of a basic blues progression and then systematically introduces new chords into that progression to add "color" and "spice" while also introducing you to the characteristic "moving chord" style of Gypsy rhythm. After addressing the basic blues progression, Jorgenson then transitions into the more Gypsy sounding minor blues progression and introduces the "three-note" chords which are prominent in Gypsy style rhythm guitar. The second half of this first volume addresses soloing. Here Jorgenson not only lays the groundwork of Gypsy jazz soloing, but in the process also presents you with a method which serves to greatly enhance your understanding of the fingerboard and improvisational playing. Jorgenson teaches arpeggios, note maps, lead patterns and Gypsy techniques in every area of the fingerboard and in various keys. Additionally, he masterfully shows how the arpeggios and patterns relate to one another. An audio CD with play-along practice tracks is also included!
