Single Note Soloing Concepts on Rhythm Changes

September 30, 2007 Monday 11:30 AM
Steve Herberman
Price per Unit (piece):

The chord changes to "I Got Rhythm" are required study for any jazz musician. Hundreds of tunes are fashioned after the Gershwin standard as well as the most popular turnarounds using the one-six-two-five progression and its substitutions. In this class I'll outline many of the useful soloing concepts including reharmonization, guide-tone lines, arpeggio usage, chord scales and motivic development using arpeggios and scales. Other topics will include reducing the changes down to basic cadences such as five to one and four minor to one as well as running the changes playing off of each chord. Learn simple and effective tricks to making the changes and handling up-tempo playing. This will be packed full of information that can be applied quickly. If rhythm changes have always been hard to handle or if you are just in need of some new ideas then this class is for you!

Steve lays out very clear approaches to Rhythm Changes and gives a lot of examples. An ear-opening lesson. I will be coming back again and again to the lesson to absorb the material. Strongly recommended if you've ever wondered what else you could do over Rhythm Changes.

Steve is an excellent teacher and always provides tons of ideas and alternative approaches to explore. This class is very practical and full of immediately useful material. I found it valuable to hear, firsthand, how a pro like Steve thinks about and expands upon fundamental concepts like the Rhythm Changes progression.

Another outstanding class from Steve Herberman. As we all know, two cornerstones of a jazz players vocabulary are the Blues and Rhythm Changes. Steve gives several logical and practical approaches to navigating Rhythm. As always his presentation is well-organized, thorough, and information-packed. Everything is well-explained and eminently musical. Like all of Steve's classes, this is highly recommended.
