The lesson package

In 3 videos I will analyze the solo and talk about how the phrases are constructed. To help you work on chord soloing. I also demonstrate some exercises to come up with voicings for chord solos and to train your ability to actually play the chord solos.

Since Summertime is a minor tune with a lot of tonic minor I also discuss 3 different approaches to harmonize minor chords. This will help you to get different sounds so you can add variation to your solos.
