A chord melody master still among us

by | Nov 20, 2017 | Articles, General Updates |

Check this video out – it’s amazing:

What you just witnessed was one of the modern day jazz guitar greats playing solo.

None other than Howard Alden.

As you’ll hear in the video, Howard is playing a quirky tune by George Van Eps, one of the kings of chord melody jazz guitar of the last century.

Howard played many concerts with Van Eps, and has kept his tradition of chord melody alive in an unbroken lineage.

Now let me ask you:

Imagine that you had the opportunity to sit down with Howard Alden in a bar somewhere for a couple of hours, and pick his brains about anything and everything about learning jazz guitar and what got his playing to where it is now.

It would be pretty amazing, wouldn’t it?

But – here’s the thing:

You actually have the opportunity to do this. This week.

There’s going to be a window of opportunity to “slip past the bouncers” and meet Howard in his (virtual) backstage green room. I’m serious.

On the 24th of November, Howard Alden has generously offered to do an exclusive 2-hour online jazz guitar workshop for FretDojo.com. You’ll be able to chat via text or audio in real time and learn Howard’s secrets directly from the “warm breath of the guru”.

I’m extending the invitation to you to book a ticket and to get in on the action.

To find out what the workshop will cover (and to get a seat before they all sell out), go here:
