Jazz Guitar Q&A #9 – Sight Reading, Studying Jazz Standards, State of mind when playing

Here’s this weeks Q&A!

Some of the topics I am covering are: How long to work on a standard(and bit how..), What position of the neck for Sight reading and some thoughts on your state of mind while improvising and judging your own playing.

I think it would be interesting to hear your thoughts on what you need to be able to do with a standard.

And your thoughts on how you judge your own playing and how you get in the right state of mind are very useful!

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.

In this weeks Q&A I am covering quesions on:

  • How I use the different pickups on my guitar
  • Sight Reading
  • How long I should you study a standard
  • Being in the zone and judging your own playing
