Mar Jazz - Starlight Jazz Jam Wednesdays 11 AM & 5 PM Pacific Time Mar 6 & 13
Description: Sit in on a real live jazz jam. Each week, we’ll reach into the jazz grab bag and pull out two or three classics. We’ll then quickly break down the nuances of the chosen tune and strum our way through it. Time permitting, we might throw in some bells and whistles, but there won’t be any deep dives here. This class is about learning to play it fast and loose!
This month, we’ll be choosing tunes that use ii-V-I and I-VI-ii-V progressions.
Skills and Concepts: Chart navigation and quick analysis Pattern Identification The three-finger pinch The Strum of the Month Easy Closed Chords Swing rhythm Elements of early 20th-century swing The Nashville Number System Tablature
Prerequisites: There are no hard requirements, but we strongly recommend basic TAB reading and basic understanding of Nashville Number System.
