Thought you might be interested in this very cool doubletime 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).

A tasty sneak peek of my new technique course inside

A tasty sneak peek of my new technique course inside

Woah – check out this video, it’ll blow your socks off:

The player in the video:

Stuart King – nationally acclaimed jazz guitarist and featured artist on ABC Jazz.

Stuart is the co-instructor in our new online course all about mastering jazz guitar technique, “Fast Lane: The Total Technique Roadmap for Jazz Guitar”.

Stuart and I have been working hard getting the videos for this brand new course ready, and the above film has some tasty snippets of what Stuart can do on the guitar.

Pretty jaw-dropping stuff as you can see.

And you now have an opportunity to learn from Stuart in this new course and directly pick his brains about all things jazz guitar, technique, or anything else besides.

Anyway, the course enrolments are closing soon – bookings are only open for a couple more days. If you want to have technique like Stuart, you’d better sign up because he’s going to reveal all in the new “Fast Lane” course. Here’s where to get access:

Obi-Wan Kenobi would have made a great jazz guitarist

Obi-Wan Kenobi would have made a great jazz guitarist

Have you seen the new Star Wars movie yet? (Don’t worry, no spoilers in this email). Great film, highly recommend.

As I was watching it, it reminded me of one of my favorite (old school) Star Wars scenes – video below:

Here, we witness Luke Skywalker getting his first taste of using a lightsaber, the weapon of choice for a Jedi.

And he sucks.

Why?

Obi-Wan Kenobi (Luke’s wise old mentor) notices that Luke is trying too hard, and thinking too much.

“This time,” he instructs, “let go your conscious self, and act on instinct”.

All of a sudden, Luke can defend a barrage of laser shots – even with his eyes closed.

Here’s the thing:

Obi-Wan Kenobi is not just a great Jedi master. He would have been a great jazz guitar teacher as well.

Too often, jazz players are thinking too hard when they play, resulting in tight, awkward technique, choking their ideas and phrasing.

By learning to “let go”, and “trusting your feelings” (more Obi-Wan wisdom), your technique, and hence your music, will begin to flow effortlessly, spontaneously and naturally.

I know you may scoff at this, like Han Solo in the above video, but I’m serious.

This simple approach has done wonders for my own playing, and it will do wonders for yours. All you need to do is learn how to take advantage of the natural power of your subconscious mind.

To learn the exact steps how to become a Jazz Guitar Jedi and become one with the music, your journey begins here my apprentice:
