TUTORiAL | 806.15 MB


Interactive Video Jam Session with a Top TrueFire Artist
In Frank Vignola’s Jazz Blues edition of Trading Solos, you’ll comp and then also trade solos with Frank over five jazz blues backing tracks featuring progressions commonly encountered on the gig or in the jam. The progressions range over a variety of keys, tempos, and feels.

”The best way to learn music and improve your playing is to play with others in as many different situations as possible. This course will give you the opportunity to explore a number of approaches to improvisation through soloing and comping - all in real-time. We'll cover a number of different melodic and rhythmic concepts and approaches that you can use with your own playing, over any jazz blues. “

Frank begins the course with a few tone tips to help you get an authentic jazz blues sound. For each of the five jazz blues backing tracks, Frank will show you a handful of licks and comping approaches that you can use over the tracks as you trade solos with him. Then, you'll take turns applying those ideas, trading solos and comping for each other.

Track 1: All Bluesy
”The first track that we'll solo over is a 12 measure blues progression which is similar to the classic "All Blues". It's in the key of G major and in 6/8 timing. We’ll discuss 3 comping techniques: using double stops, using a descending counter line with chords and using a common rhythm pattern. I’ll give you 3 lick ideas that can be used over this classic progression. The first is what to play over a sharp 9 chord, and the second lick is based on the suspended or 4th. The third lick idea is targeting the G note on the last G chord of the progression. In the playalong preview, I'll demonstrate the ideas discussed in the comping and lick idea section. Then I'll comp for you when you're soloing and you’ll comp for me when I'm playing a solo. Let’s trade solos!”

Track 2: Bb Blues
”The second track that we'll solo over is a 12 measure swing bebop blues progression. It's in the key of Bb major and in 4/4 swing bebop feel. We’ll discuss 3 comping techniques: using legato style chords, using a Charleston rhythmic pattern with 2 note chords and using a common tone on top of each of the chords. I’ll also show you 3 lick ideas that can be used over this classic progression. The first is playing Bb pentatonic blues over the 1-6-2-5 progression at the end of the progression, and the second lick is a classic bebop lick. The third lick idea is a minor 9 lick over the Cm7 - F7 on the last few bars of the progression utilizing the flat 9 on top of the F7 chord. In the playalong preview, I'll demonstrate the ideas discussed in the comping and lick idea section. Then I'll comp for you when you're soloing and you’ll comp for me when I'm playing a solo. Let’s trade solos!”

Track 3: Funky G Blues
”The third track that we'll solo over is a 12 measure funky blues progression. It's in the key of G major and in a funky 4/4 timing. We’ll discuss 3 comping techniques: a common rhythmic pattern for funky style jazz blues, using higher inversions and playing two rhythmic patterns at once. I’ll also show you 3 lick ideas that can be used over this classic progression. The first is targeting the diminished chord and chord tones, and the second lick is playing octaves, á la Wes. The third lick idea is using double stops. In the playalong preview, I'll demonstrate the ideas discussed in the comping and lick idea section. Then I'll comp for you when you're soloing and you’ll comp for me when I'm playing a solo. Let’s trade solos!”

Track 4: F Blues
”The fourth track that we'll solo over is a 12 measure blues progression. It's in the key of F major and in a 4/4 swing bebop feel. In this segment, I discuss 3 comping techniques: old school four to the bar Freddie Green style rhythm, using a common rhythmic pattern and only 2 note chords using the 3rd and 7th and using some common substitutions. I’ll also show you 3 lick ideas that can be used over this classic progression. The first is using the 9th to root which is associated with swing style blues, and the second lick is using thirds. The third lick idea is targeting a chord cluster. In the playalong preview, I'll demonstrate the ideas discussed in the comping and lick idea section. Then I'll comp for you when you're soloing and you’ll comp for me when I'm playing a solo. Let’s trade solos!”

Track 5: C Jam
”The fifth track that we'll solo over is a 12 measure blues progression which is similar to the classic "C Jam Blues". It's in the key of C major and in 4/4 swing timing. We’ll discuss 3 comping techniques: using the rhythm of the original melody as a comping technique, using the Charleston rhythm with a sharp 9 chord and revisiting the sixth chord slide down which is a common bluesy comping technique. I’ll also show you 3 lick ideas that can be used over this classic progression. The first is utilizing the flat 7th descending chromatically, and the second lick is again moving the flat 3rd up to the 5th. The third lick idea is using that same riff over the 5 chord. In the playalong preview, I'll demonstrate the ideas discussed in the comping and lick idea section. Then I'll comp for you when you're soloing and you’ll comp for me when I'm playing a solo. Let’s trade solos!”

Frank will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the key examples and performances. Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tool to sync the tab and notation to the video and can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All the backing tracks are included to work with on your own as well.

Grab your guitar and let’s trade solos with Frank Vignola!
