Hey, hope you still into Jazz. Listen to the much Jazz as possible, and
read music theory online, you can practice it and study it by yourself, or
if you can, go on a professional school at least so you can get some
musical theory, because it helps in everything! Good luck buddy!

Author When Will You Learn? ( ago)
In response to DazzerX's comment - Arpeggios won't isolate the 'jazzy'
sound. There are three scales that come to mind when playing jazz. The
bebop, altered, diminished and melodic scales. The only arpeggios that will
isolate the sound of the scale would be the tetradic arpeggio 1 b3 b5 b7.
This would isolate the altered sound very well as very few scales have a
b3, b5 and b7. Another arpeggio is the diminished arpeggio 1 b3 b5 6. This
will isolate the diminished sound...

Author When Will You Learn? ( ago)
Excellent! Is this melodic or altered?

Jluvsmetal learn your scales and notes. Dominant 7s are quite frequently
used in jazz. They probably have the most resolving power

Author BrianBerowski ( ago)
You can use F major scale, or D dorian for soloing over this.

Author Miles Smith ( ago)
very Motown 

Author BrianBerowski ( ago)
When i tried improvising over this i found that the parallel key d minor
works so i was using the D dorian mode scale and that worked for me.

Author David Buckley ( ago)
@jluvsmetal Just learn some scales and modes and some basic chord theory
and you'll be set.

Author Malcolm Horne ( ago)
I hear a LOT of Norman Brown in there. You sound great man! Love the lick
at 0:14. That was directly from Norman Brown's "Let's Take a Ride", same
key and note for note. I'm sure he would be proud. Keep up the great work!!

Author Adam Marszałkowski ( ago)
@TheDismalDream Totally disagree with You. Jazz is full emotions and some
kind of music soul that's put into finger while playing. Shreding is only
showing of technique and speed skills. It haven't any sence for me, while
jazz is completely magic and amazing

Author Nathan Mescher (Nate) ( ago)
@jluvsmetal I'm not saying you are incompetent or you can't learn because
you CAN. But Music Theory is a lot. It's like math. you learn simple things
(like decimals in math) and you keep building on theory of what you already
know (like how algebra keeps using the same concepts). Take classes or
lessons from a teacher. i took AP Music Theory in high schooland it was a
lot of fun!

@DeathMetalDeth This was fully improvised. Of course, I incorporated a few
licks and phrases that I already knew but I had no idea how the whole solo
was going to come out in the end. Some of what I played, I actually
surprised myself. That's what's so great about improvising. Thanks for the
compliments. Check out my site if you want to improve. Believe me, it
doesn't take a genius. Just hard work and dedication. Leon

Author eddieisfiction ( ago)
@learnjazzguitar on top of that you want to bust out more lydian/
myxolydian base outlines, main key is adding sound in a jazzy way, you can
hear what hes doing. he has silence periods, and has his ins and outs with
pops. Make sure you are busting out some 7th or 9th arpeggios mostly, or
youll sound like a neo classical shredder. Try to play with the drummer
more than any other instrument as well, have chromatics, and dont forget to
mix non and diminished licks into harmonic modes.

Author longination ( ago)
lol this is amazing and sounds great. Would be interested to hear how it
sounds through a tube amp. Do you have videos of you playing with tangiable
amps? This made me very happy cheers !!

Author John Stewart ( ago)
@Ins4n3Guit4rist Do you understand music theory? Because if you do then
this is pretty simple to learn. the numbers are relative to the chords in
the key he is playing in. He's playing in F so 2-5-1-6 are the chords:

Author Jeremy Pace ( ago)
@Ins4n3Guit4rist it's the number note in a scale. for example, if you were
to solo over c using this progression, the chords roughly would be d, g, c,
a. in this case, you would use the notes in the f major scale.

@learnjazzguitar hi, great song! but can you tell me the bass line and
chord of the INTRO SONG of this video? or, actually how to create it. is it
any scale theory, or just improvise? do you have a song like that? i got
stress with this kind of song, but i really want to know how to play it. :D
i can imitate it (with hear it, over and over), but i can't improvise. PS:
sorry for my bad english :)

Author learnjazzguitar ( ago)
@PhillyGregA I wasn't using an amp, I was plugged directly into a tascam
dp-02. Just a little reverb for improved tone. Leon

@ArniePyeInTheSky No, you can play the parent scale over any of the chords
in a given key. For example, over Am7, can play a C Major scale since Am7
belongs the key of C. While your solo won't necessarily sound like your
defining the sound of the chord you're playing over, it's a start and at
least it won't sound like you're playing obviously wrong notes. The next
step would be to incorporate arpeggios and substitutions to outline the
chord changes for a more harmonically specific sound.
