Online Guitar Lessons

6 posts in this topic

My work at several online lesson sites earned me a Gibson-Epiphone endorsement. They sent me a wonderful machine, an Emperor II Joe Pass model in exchange for some simple, intro to jazz guitar video lessons. Gibson recently published the lessons on their site (free to view):

Over the last decade I've been more and more interested in solo jazz guitar. And that interest of course led me to the magnificient work of Joe Pass. As such, doing those lessons on that site with a Joe Pass model guitar is a sincerely cherished achievement for me. :rolleyes:

Enjoy the vids!

Gibson has been gradually adding more of my lessons. My latest is pretty neat, a concise, but still complete intro to Chord Melody Style from the ground up.

Happy viewing!

As usual, great output from you! Unlike a lot of video lessons I've encountered, I understood what you were saying as you were presenting it. Good pace, presentation, and clarity. I might want to incorporate that into my blues studies I am currently undertaking. Spice up the ol' 12 bars, you know?

Actually thought about you the other day when I was picking up my lifelong dream guitar (and an all tube amp!) as I haven't been here very much as of late. I got a '59 Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose Gretsch hollow body and a Peavey Delta Blues 210. Oh, the tone! The tone, the tone, the tone.

As a payback for yet another dose of musical pleasure, I'll leave you with this funny musical story from my personal folly files. I laid a guitar track down for one of my friends for a song of his. He's one of those cut and paste types, no real musical knowledge, but I like to play so... A few months later he calls me back and says he was about to do a final mix for the song, but my track got corrupted and the sound was terrible. Could I come back and rerecord it? I told him I could, but it probably wouldn't be the same piece as I didn't write it down. "What the hell do you mean?" he screams, "that piece was perfect! Just listen to it and redo it!"

I very patiently tried to explain to him that I had no ear. I can't even redo my own music! I thought he was going to cry or kill me for being a liar or something! I eventually got it somewhat and he can't tell the difference!

Fixing that though as I remembered a Perfect Pitch course from Burge that was in every guitar magazine when I was a kid. Works pretty well, too!

Anyway good luck with your playing and lessons, and thanks again!

Thanks for watching. I hope you find something useful in there. The Joe Pass C Blues thing really can help your blues playing. Especially in a solo guitar situation.

Thanks for the amusing story. Funny stuff there. ;)
