This lesson series is meant to help you discover new ideas, develop a larger vocabulary, and have a better understanding of concepts that are common to modern jazz and fusion guitar. By working through lines over stationary chords, ii–V–I progressions, various jazz standards, and more modern-sounding progressions, we can develop solid fundamentals and stylistic approach that will work well in modern jazz, fusion, and straight-ahead jazz.
