The Blues from Rock to Jazz
Alfred's Artist Series has expanded to include Don Mock: The Blues from Rock to Jazz.
Don Mock is internationally recognized as a master educator, guitarist, author, recording artist, composer, and synthesizer stylist. As one of the three original founding instructors at the Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT) in Hollywood, Don has long been known and respected for his broad knowledge of the instrument.
In this DVD, Don uses the basic blues progression as a vehicle to teach chords and soloing techniques found in contemporary blues and jazz fusion. He starts by guiding youthrough the dominant chord family, showing the basic chords and their substitutions for comping, plus scales, arpeggios and melodic ideas for improvising. Next, he covers how to solo over each chord in the 12-bar blues using secondary dominants and the turnaround. Finally, he breaks down three jazz-fusion 12-bar blues solos, with an in-depth analysis of each bar.
Special features include a printable PDF booklet with note-for-note transcriptions, a bonus performance from Robben Ford's The Blues and Beyond, anda bonus lesson from The Definitive Steve Morse.
