Level 2 & 3:
Jazz Guitar Video Masterclass Volume 1

By Chris Standring

From intermediate to advanced, this cutting edge video software program presents Chris Standring in the first of a jazz guitar masterclass series. In this 11 lesson program Chris discusses building vocabulary, connecting new phrases to existing vocab, rhythm & comping including walking basslines and comping at the same time, and six live performances by Chris, all transcribed with notation and TAB. Comes with play along tracks, spiral bound workbook and optional DVD.

"I downloaded the course and found it to be much more informative than I expected one of these courses to be! You lay it out very clearly and the musical ideas are all super cool, especially the II - V - I bebop phrases. I also liked your solos over "All the Things You Are" and the other tunes, too. In fact, all your solos have good, solid construction and a very swinging feel. I think this course will be very helpful to anyone that's looking to play over changes. Playing through this course will give the serious student of the instrument a more linear way to play up and down the neck, and in turn expand their range on the guitar. I can tell a LOT of work went into this project....All the best!" - Carl Verheyen, LA studio guitarist

Hello Chris. I have had a quick glance through the programme and I can honestly say that it is brilliant. The next 6 months are going to be exciting for me. I would really like to thank you for all the work you have put in to it. It will be invaluable to me! - Michael Watters

Hi Chris - I thought that JGVM vol 2 really hit the mark. It's the kind of instruction that makes playing guitar fun. I've always leaned toward playing the standards; in particular ballads. The tunes you provided and the treatment afforded each was just right for someone like myself. Nice job! - Bob DeVivo.

Level 2 & 3:
Play What You Hear

By Chris Standring

From intermediate to advanced level, this highly acclaimed course teaches you how to "play what you hear". You will learn the jazz vocabulary and understand how to improvise using this vocab over many different harmonies. You will learn to hear major, melodic minor and blues scales and learn harmony and how to see it all very simply on the fretboard. Over 300 audio examples and tons of play along tracks.

"By far the most innovative and effective ear training program for guitarists I have seen! Simply the best learning method to come along since Jamie Abersold. Chris has hit on something really good and much needed today Players of my generation learned to play on the bandstand as we were forced to "play what we heard" and if we didn't, we had to get it together pretty darn quick. This course will help speed up that learning process rapidly. I will recommend this course to my students highly!" - Ron Eschete Concord Recording artist and educator
