Truefire Frank Vignolas Jazzin the Blues Vol.1

Larry Carlton, Robben Ford, Scott Henderson, and Oz Noy are just a few examples of top notch guitarists who are widely respected for jazzing up their blues improvisations with jazz phrasing and tonalities. On the other end of the scale, most students of blues guitar struggle when it comes to jazzing up their blues lines because they haven’t yet been exposed to jazz harmonies and melodic approaches.

In this first volume of Jazzin’ the Blues, Frank Vignola jump starts your jazzed blues skills by guiding you through 20 performance studies, each focused on a specific jazz harmonic concept.

”Blues gave birth to jazz. Yet, a lot of blues players are challenged when it comes to jazzing up their blues lines. I’ve prepared 20 studies to help students get up to speed by applying a range of jazz harmonies to what they already know. We’ll start as simple as adding a single tone to the pentatonic scale and then progress to integrating more sophisticated tonalities in their lines. Throughout the course, we'll be working exclusively with standard 1-4-5 blues progressions, in a variety of keys and feels.”

Frank organized the course into 10 sets of lessons. Each set focuses on a specific jazz harmonic approach and each features two solo performance studies. Frank will first perform the soloing performance study and then break it down note-for-note explaining the underlying harmonic approach.

You’ll learn how to “jazz up your blues” by playing your way through the course - no tedious theory or boring exercises to struggle through.
