Playing Octaves

When Wes Montgomery introduced octaves in his playing that unique, sweet sound gained him immediate attention and recognition. Octaves are playing the same note on two strings usually one octave apart.  This section is a study of how to play octaves a la the Wes Montgomery style.  These lessons were designed to cut years off the time needed to become a proficient octave player.   Adding octaves will give a new dimension to your playing and can make even a pop tune sound jazzy.  

Basic theory training will help you with these lessons.  If you are weak in theory we recommend studying Theory For The Road simultaneously with these lessons.
