Thought you might be interested in this very cool double-time jazz solo I recorded in my studio recently.

Here Stuart King, one of Australia’s greatest guitarists, is busting out some very tasty minor lines over Sunny (which I’ve aptly named…”Runny” after editing this video).

The best part:
 
Stuart’s agreed to give you a full accurate transcription of his improvised solo completely for FREE! (I’ve also included the backing track Stuart uses).
 
Download it above so you can follow along with the video (very cool substitutions are being used in this).
Have fun with this and hope you find it useful.

It’s been a while, but it’s great to be back in front of the video camera.

If you’re finding it impossible and frustrating to solo over those tricky jazz standards like All The Things You Are (hint: you haven’t been the first person to drop those key changes)…

It’s probably because you aren’t doing what my new Youtube video demonstrates.

In this brand new video lesson (which includes a FREE workbook and backing track), you’re going to get the down & dirty on guide tones, and how they are an essential shortcut for easily mastering the changes of any jazz standard.

You’ll learn which notes to target over those tricky chord progressions and still get through alive and kicking to the other side.

Check out the video now and let me know what you think (remember to get that free workbook).
