In the chord melody lesson your goal is to memorize the chord progression while learning this intermediate chord melody.
The simple comping arrangement will help the novice jazz guitarist learn this important jazz standard. The lesson uses the standard block chords that most players use for the tune and discusses flat five substitutions, right hand technique and offers some simple rhythm choices to use throughout the song.
Mastering the two arpeggio studies will not only give you the target notes or guide tones to help improvise over the chord progression of Stella By Starlight but will also build your technique.
A Chet Baker solo over Stella changes. The solo is very melodic and memorable and is a simpler one to add to you jazz vocabulary. Chet did the solo in the key of G but Rich has transposed it for you to the more common key of Bb.
A Rich Severson crafted solo for Stella based on arpeggio study #. This solo will help you gain insight into how to turn a study into a lyrical solo. Many useable phrases can be extracted from the solo for other tunes.
Many simple insights and tricks are discussed to offer you insights and ideas into the development of your own creative solos. Rich discusses use of the Jazz Scale, Harmonic Minor, Dominant Diminished and Major Scales.
