I was a guest on the guitar hour podcast this week. 😎 

We are having fun disucssing some heavy Jazz Harmony with Dan Smith, David Beebee, Tom Quayle and myself!

It’s always great fun to hang out with these guys! I am hoping to get them on the channel as well!

The Topics

How to understand harmony, analyze chords and assign scales to them.

But also what types of tunes it works on and taking the melody into consideration.

Fretboard Visualization That makes musical sense for Jazz Guitar

Fretboard Visualization is the way I organize and visualize the notes on the neck. Which also reflects how I think about the notes and order them for improvising.

In a guitar solo a note is not just a note: It can be a chord tone, a passing tone or extension or even a chromatic passing note. The way I try to think about the notes on the guitar I try to take this into consideration and have a way of thinking that will help me solo and categorize the notes in a useful way.
