This course, along with 6 chord melody etudes, is designed to get you started on the road to using more chords in your solos and arrangements!

Looking to enrich your solo guitar arrangements of the classic gypsy jazz standards?
Looking to add more chordal ideas into your solos?
Looking for the final push to take full advantage to what the guitar is really capable of?

I've taken 6 classic standards with typical chord progressions and I've written a chord melody etude. I then breakdown each etude, explaining what was my thought process. This way, you can see how to approach turning a simple melody into a more evolved arrangement.

The goal of this course is for you to be able to start making your own arrangements of jazz melodies on your own and to stop thinking that it's too complicated.
