Learn the basic elements of jazz as you begin to apply them to actual tunes. The course starts right at the beginning with easy jazz improvisation, and then gradually leads you through different chord progressions, shows you how to find which scale to use when soloing on standard tunes, gets you playing walking bass lines (with a surprisingly easy method!), and helps you phrase melodies in your own way. Jazz Blues, Chord Inversions, and Modes are also covered.
