Herb Ellis: Swing Jazz Soloing and Comping (DVD)
Let the undisputed "King of Swing" bring a personable and relaxed approach to the serious business of creating flowing and swinging guitar lines.
In this 90 minute video, Herb uses the 12-bar blues progression as a background while he discusses and demonstrates some favorite lines that have made him part of jazz guitar history. Herb takes you through tuning, chord formations, scales, picking, comping, equipment, and melodic ideas, and adds some commonsense advice.
DVD special features include a tuning segment, a bonus performance by Joe Pass, bonus lessons in swing blues and major arpeggios, and printable PDF reference materials.
