  An introduction to Jazz

As the name suggests, this course is an introduction to playing jazz guitar for those who either want to just get started in jazz guitar, and don't know how, or have already tried but have become frustrated in making headway.

The course gently introduces you to the three main aspects of jazz guitar:Comping, Soloing and Chord-melody arrangement.

It will provide you with the foundations to tackle:

Jazzing up a blues, rock classic, country, folk or other songs.

Performing jazz standards.

Accompanying/comping: chord substitutions and extensions

Soloing: scales, arpeggios and modes.

Chord-melody arrangement: playing the tune and your own chords at the same  time.

Pre-requisites

For this Jazz Weekend you need to be able to:

Play a blues solo, even a mediocre one

Play a Major Scale, without open strings

Use open chords and basic barre chords reasonably fluently

Work out a melody either from standard notation (no matter how slowly), or by ear.
