Well, the I-vi-ii-V was done to death in the '20s and '30s and yet a lot of good tunes were written to those changes later on. And in the '20s and '30s, of course. It can still be used today, as Hi there Strange question but since getting into jazz guitar I find playing without a pick just feels more comfortable than with,.

Guess I need to just use a plectrum more,. Does anyone You couldn't get away from that staleness in the 90s. Once a song of mine starts sounding too much like another, I launch a rewrite, and if I avoid cliche changes unless I'm deliberately trying to evoke this or that mood, and even then I much prefer to throw a twist in to keep from sounding generic.

Generally, when I'm fleshing out the One possible place to jump in: Comparative approach. I sometimes fear the appearances of cultural appropriation when it comes to these sensitive subjects, and use of terrible images to make part of a I had to put a Seymour Duncan Little 59 mini-humbucker in the neck position of my Strat to get a jazz sound.

This came up in a Facebook ad. Silly stock picture I guess. But cool guitar! Love the f-holes. Anyone know who is the maker of this guitar? Ascending bass lines. I like them. Some of my favorite tunes contain ascending bass lines. A short article on them, with examples I use this quite a bit with my Parker P when I play shows. You can get some interesting sounds. It doesn't really work for jazz though, IMHO. Ha, ha. In doing my research on this app, I read a lot of funny comments about drummers speeding up and slowing down during songs.

That must be hell and something that can ruin the whole darn I've never heard of this before. But I've not really messed around much with the neck bolts. Changing the neck pitch slightly via the micro-tilt has made a noticeable difference in Search Titles Only. Thread Tools. Maybe some here already do that, I'm sure somebody has at some point. But if using this method, it seems to generally be a little more difficult to get the jazzy effect, unless somebody has some advice they can throw at me about using this method.

Maybe I'm just not practiced enough. Maybe it's time to move onto memorizing whole arpeggio shapes. The Jazz Guitar Chord Dictionary. Join Date Nov Posts Diatonic arps first. Jazz is all about moving from a to b so for starters, learn them in pairs. II-V, V-I, etc. Then try II-V-I.. It's a struggle at first. People get all whiny cuz its so hard on the guitar..

Very rewarding eventually though. Join Date Jun Posts 1, Which ones first? But emanresu said it well. In terms of approach, go diatonic. Learn "skips" skips being arpeggios of course from all scale tones in Major, Melodic Minor, and Harmonic Minor not all at once, one at a time, this takes a little time. Play them ascending from all seven tones of each scale. Then do the same descending from all scale tones. Not so easy. Join Date Apr Posts 2, Or you could study the arpeggios related to whatever song s you are working on.

If you can already find the chord tones, you already know the arpeggios, unless you're referring to well-practiced fingerings that you can play really fast. I would advocate learning small 1 octave arpeggios In terms of which ones to learn - who do you like to listen to. But if you like Charlie Christian, or Django, you might choose different arps CC use the m6 on everything, Django used m6 but also lots of triad arps often quite big ones and dim7s.

So listening and working out lines will more likely show you the path than asking others. You know what sounds appeal to YOU. Originally Posted by christianm Sounds reasonable Are you saying that some players will use only one arpeggio on everything?

I imagine that implies flat ing and sharp ing some of those tones and using a lot of other tricks like "enclosure", using the said arpeggio as a foundation? When I first started playing with the simple maj7 arpeggio, moving in and out of the chord tones key always resolving back to the arpeggio, created a pretty neat tension and resolution effect, and potential for song.

I may try this some more if I can get your blessing Well CC, doesn't use m6 on major chords. He plays Chuck Berry licks on those haha or rather Chuck played CC licks. Sometimes he uses passing tones in the arp. He then connects these to other arps using simple chromatic voice leading things. It's not all he does but it's a feature of his playing that jumps out right away.

Not every player does this, but most of the good ones appear to be very systematic about applying material in every situation they can. It would be a good practice exercise to practice playing one arpeggio type on every chord in a blues, say I'm talking about playing lines in the context of solo guitar without accompaniment.

John A. Join Date Jan Posts 4, I think it's helpful to have a basic positional reference for arps to start. Much more doable as a starting reference than the commonly mentioned "everything from every position". Eventually yes, but it's easy to get bogged down for decades and not spend enough time with real music. With that approach, you can more quickly get onto things like melodic minor arps etc. A lot of people advocate learning fretboard basics and language simultaneously.

Didn't work as well for me. Getting some basics for major and melodic minor gave me a lot better context for understanding real musical applications to the fretboard.

I recall a lesson with the great Steve Erquiaga in which he played a single Bb note against two bars of Bbmaj7 and got what I thought of at the time as a terrific "jazzy effect". One note, but timed and articulated perfectly. One of my favorite horn players is LA great Robert Kyle. Melodic and great drive. To me, his playing sounds very inside.

Other players are constantly outside. They all have great "jazzy effect". So, the question becomes, what gives a solo the "jazzy effect"?

Clearly it isn't the choice of scales, since one guy gets it with G mixo against G7 and another guy gets it with notes that the theorists later have to argue about using arcane language. Mostly, I think it's 1 rhythmic content of the line.
