   Fred Sokolow is an extremely versatile musician! Although he is most often seen playing jazz guitar and singing in Los Angeles night spots, he is just as likely to turn up playing 5 string banjo at bluegrass festivals or rock guitar at studio sessions. You may even spot him playing Resonator guitar or mandolin on various folk revivals seen on cable and public television.

    Born in Los Angeles September 14, 1945, by the early 1960s Fred was well known in the California bluegrass scene, playing with Jody Stecher, Brantley Kearns, Sandy Rothman and Eric Thompson. Relocating to Berkeley, he toured and recorded with a hippie rock band throughout most of the 60s, the Bay Area-based Notes From the Underground.

    In the early 70s Fred performed with R&B, rock, country and bluegrass bands. By 1975 Fred had played with bluegrass luminaries like John Herald, Frank Wakefield and Jerry Garcia, had opened for the Grateful Dead, the Doors, B.B. King, Country Joe and the Fish and countless other acts.
  
   Besides soloing as a jazz guitarist/vocalist, Fred Sokolow has also fronted his own jazz, bluegrass and rock bands. He has toured with Bobbie Gentry, Jim Stafford and The Limeliters. He has performed in such diverse settings as The Fillmore, The Fairmount Hotel and The Boarding House in San Francisco, The Denver Folklore Center, The Alladin, Sahara and Harrah's in Las Vegas and the Banjo Cafe, Donte's, and McCabe's in LA. 

   Fred has written over 50 instructional books and DVDs. If you think that Fred Sokolow still isn't versatile enough, know that he has MC'd for Carol Doda at San Francisco's legendary Condor Club, accompanied a Russian balalaika virtuoso, won The Gong Show, played lap steel on The Tonight Show, played Resonator guitar with Chubby Checker as well as written and performed the music score for the movie Rampaging Nurses!

Fred Sokolow - Understanding Chord Progressions - DVD
When you know how chord progressions work it's much easier to learn and remember new songs! And when you understand a song's chord structure you're not just memorizing letter names - in fact, you will now be able to play the tune in any key. Learning how songs are put together also develops your musical ear and enhances your appreciation of music in general. In this lesson, Fred draws from several musical genres (rock, blues, jazz, pop and country) to illustrate many standard types of chord movement and song structures. You'll learn about chord families, the twelve bar blues, circle-of-fifths changes, diatonic chord movement and more! Along the way you'll learn how to play and comprehend the progressions of many classic tunes including "All of Me, Every Day I Have the Blues, Blue Skies, Your Cheatin' Heart, Blue Moon, Mister Sandman, Honeysuckle Rose, Like a Rolling Stone, Ain't Misbehavin, I Got Rhythm". Fred explains everything in terms of the guitar fretboard so you'll not only learn how to play these songs but learn how to use your guitar to understand music theory and harmony at the same time!

Fred Sokolow - Jazz Chord Melody Solos For Beginners - DVD
If you love old standards like "Georgia On My Mind" and "Ain't Misbehavin" but always thought that only advanced guitarists could play them, you'll love Fred's easy-to-play jazz chord melody solos! In this DVD, you'll learn six timeless tunes from start to finish, how to play backup while you sing them and how to play a beautiful chord melody solo instrumental for each song. The tunes are arranged for beginners. There are no difficult chords and Fred explains each song measure by measure before playing it. Then you'll watch him re-play the song slowly on a split screen with close-ups of both hands. Chord melody soloing (playing the melody and chords at the same time) is a very complete and cool sounding guitar style! This lesson will get you started and Fred's relaxed teaching style makes it easy! Songs include: "Summertime, Fly Me To the Moon, Georgia On My Mind, It Had To Be You, What a Wonderful World, Ain't Misbehavin".
