Jazz Guitar Q&A #17 – Passing chords, Before Jazz, Dominant Scales,   Melody in solos

I hope you are all having a nice Christmas!!

This weeks Q&A was filmed in a very cold house because my heating was broken. The questions I go over are on  Passing chords, so what are they, different kinds like chromatic, diatonic, diminished. What I played before I started playing Jazz. I discuss melodic minor modes and how to pick dominant scales. The final question is on how to keep your solo related to the melody.

Remember that if you have any questions on guitars, effects, improvisation, technique or improvisation then leave a comment on my video or send me a message on Facebook or Instagram.
