This might be slightly off topic, but check out Emily Remler's Hot Lick's video lesson. Someone posted this on YouTube...here's a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiO3er5yHNo&feature=PlayList&p=28C20384C26994D2&playnext_from=PL&playnext=1&index=6

By the way, the link above seems to automatically proceed to several other Emily Remler clips (lessons and performances).

Emily's HL video covered a lot of basic jazz rhythm concepts. If you do a search on YouTube, you'll find other Emily Remler lesson clips. She seemed to focus a lot on rhythm and swing, so hopefully you will find something helpful from one of her lessons.

Good luck in your search for this kind of material.

Darryl

Emily Remler could really swing. In the clips that come from her Hot Licks video you can hear her swinging HARD. I don't think of Emily Remler as the best female jazz guitarist; I think of her as simply one of the BEST jass guitarists ever.

Like Lenny Breau, it is a shame that Emily Remler suffered from addiction.

BIG LOSSES.

Thumbs Up! Thumbs Up! @greentone I did'nt go as far but, u nailed it she was one of THE BEST.

We lost so many great talents to addiction I guess thats the price for riding the wave of fame.

Remler used to sit in with the Great Guitars--Barney Kessel, Herb Ellis, and Charlie Byrd. Remler would fill in for whichever guy would be unable to tour at that point. Now, those guys could swing HARD. They had serious senses of rhythm. Arguably, Herb Ellis was the second-best oomping guitarist behind the great Freddie Green.

Emily Remler could hang with the big dogs, just fine. Her sense of rhythm was a mile wide an deep, deep, deep. She also played great with her Berklee classmate, John Scofield.

I would rate Remler's innate feel for rhythm right up there with Joe Pass. Their senses of swing strike me as quite comparable. Both are great places to study jazz feel, IMO.

Yeah, uh, drop the "good for a girl" mentality.

Absolutely! Remler reported running into the "not bad for a girl" stuff all the time. She claimed that musicians actually didn't trust her sense of time because she was a girl. Too bad because Emily Remler was simply a first rate musician.

Frankly, I think all of us guitarists run into a bias from other musicians that we have suspect time. There's just something about producing sound on the guitar that makes it less "pocket," at least in the minds of other musicians than other instruments.

That said, Remler was a rock--you can feel her time and it feels right.

there's a part at the end of one of her hot licks videos where she just talks to the camera about practicing and working and loving the music, and it's downright moving. just the passion she had for the music was so strongly expressed that I find that little spiel as valuable as any technical stuff she had demonstrated during the preceding hour. and "girl" has nothing to do with it. Cool
