Still Time To Get Your Jazz Questions Answered
A couple of days ago I invited the community here to join an open discussion about finding real solutions to what you struggle with the most in your jazz playing.
The response level has been great! We’ve had a ton of questions and responses so far. I encourage you to check out the discussion below the article and post your own questions.
If you think you can help somebody I encourage you to answer questions as well. We all learn from sharing with each other!
Some Cool Jazz Sites and Links
- Here’s a link to a collection of all the tunes in the real book recorded on Spotify. This should open lots of doors for you guys.
- Here’s Ralph Patt’s very cool jazz vanilla book. This is a collection of just basic chords changes for hundreds of well known jazz standards. No frills just basic chords. None the less an excellent resource. I use it alot.
Hope you have an excellent weekend and keep swingin’ my friends!
