Class ID: CJLLXP015
Not getting a lot of swing feel in your soloing? Struggling with your time? Swing guitarist Cyd Smith will help you work on this essential element of your playing. The class will work on riffs as an improvising tool and as a way to really focus on keeping in the groove. In addition the class will work on using a song's melody as basis for melodic improvisation. Riffs and licks are great, but melody is too—and it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that...
Punctual attendance and desire to learn to play jazz/desire to improve.
Homework is comprised of playing assignments based on the ensemble music and individual needs.
Class meets 1.5 hours weekly.
