When it comes to practicing, knowing how to get started can be the hardest part.

In the first part of this course, modern jazz artist Horace Bray takes you through his daily regimen that’s designed to get the fingers and mind moving. The practice reinforces a deep knowledge of the fretboard, and it progresses in difficulty.

The second part of this course is all about improvisation. Building on the scales and arpeggios established in the warmup, Horace shows you different approaches to superimpose a spectrum of major and minor chords over certain harmonies. If you’ve ever heard contemporary players stretching the sound of a simple chord progression and thought, “how do they do that?” — this is the “that.”
