Notes.........: Jazz guitar students have three big mountains to climb; the theoretical,
the physical and the aesthetical. The first two are fairly straight
forward propositions. Keep your nose in the books and you will surely
master the theoretical. Spend enough time in the shed and the chops will
likewise surely come. But mastering the ôaestheticsö of jazz is quite
another thing and this is where most jazz guitar students hit the wall.
Graduated Solos presents an intuitive approach for cultivating the
aesthetics of your jazz improvisations, specifically how to construct
beautiful, expressive solos using the melody as the template for the
improvisation. Most students of jazz guitar are so focused on the
prevailing progression that they often neglect the tune itself.
While there are many superb improvisations that make no reference
whatsoever to the head, the most brilliant and memorable solos are
generally ôgraduatedö improvisations that stem directly from the melody.
Your professor of Graduated Solos is Mimi Fox; phenom player,
accomplished educator and top recording artist on the Favored Nations
label. Mimi chairs the guitar department at the Jazz School in Berkeley.
Her first TrueFire course, Jazz Anatomy rocketed immediately to the top
of the jazz guitar instruction charts and remains there to this day.
Guitar Player cites Mimi as "a prodigious talent who has not only
mastered the traditional forms, but has managed to reinvigorate them."
Just Jazz Guitar hails her playing as "jazz guitar at its best."
In short, Fox has all the chops.
Graduated Solos is a hands-on playing course that gets you up and running
without tedious theory and exercises. Mimi presents five compositions
constructed with a wide range of progressions that are common to thousands
of jazz tunes. You will first learn to play the melody for each composition
and work through a detailed analysis of the tuneÆs structure.
Mimi then demonstrates how to adapt the melody into a graduated series of
improvisations using arpeggiated figures, harmonic substitutions, rhythmic
variations, motific development, articulation, phrasing and other approaches
for building a well-constructed solo and playing with ôheart and commitment.ö
If your improvisations have ôhit the wallö and youÆre feeling a bit in the
proverbial rut, MimiÆs Graduated Solos course is likely the epiphany youÆve
been yearning for.
