IMPROVISATION: Pop Jazz Soloing Andrew for FREE lesson Handouts.This Video: May 25, 2012 | Search Videos by Title/Date.GO TO: Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question...Q: One style I can never solo very well over is pop jazz. A favorite band I like is the Steely Dan. But, somehow the way they put together their chords, I can never just play one scale over those progressions. Andrew, is this just because the harmonies in this style are of a jazz nature, or is this because I don't know my modes well enough?Dean -- Long Beach, CA. USAA: Soloing problems over the chord changes found in pop jazz music are generally difficult for guitarists because of two reasons. #1, a lack of knowledge surrounding how to properly analyze chord progressions and #2, a lack of overall skill at applying the; modes, and the Ma & Mi pentatonic scales. In the video I focus on this issue by looking over one of the primary harmonic ideas that pop jazz commonly applies into it's chord progressions, "Modal Interchange." I also give several examples of licks that can work well when learning how to play over this style.MY TWITTER FEED: WASSON - Personal Website: postings - w/FREE Guitar Handouts)____________________________________Visit our Creative Guitar Studio Zazzle page: Creative Guitar Studio Products Website: CLOUD: Listen to some of my songs.
