In Sean McGowan’s Fingerstyle Jazz Survival Guide, you worked on 20 essential concepts and 5 solo arrangements to help you develop a foundation of jazz fingerstyle technique.

In this Essentials edition of Sean’s Fingerstyle Jazz course series, you’ll expand your repertoire with 10 more solo jazz arrangements and dig deeper into right- and left-hand techniques, harmonic applications, and creative approaches for composing, arranging, and performing solo guitar pieces.

”I’ll teach you 10 full-length fingerstyle jazz arrangements, each of which I will perform and then break down for you emphasizing the essential techniques and approaches you’ll need that include muting, dynamics, syncopation, and counterpoint.”

You’ll start with a 12 bar blues in the key of F. Then you’ll dig into Bird of Paradise, a piece that explores block chord harmony and single-note lines. Next is Autumn in New England, a beautiful ballad that explores lush chord voicings and rubato playing.

With a slow, gospel feel, Georgia Peach will cover blues language and the push and pull of straight and swing rhythms, Blues Three Ways is a standard 12 bar jazz blues covered in three different keys, and then you’ll work on Our Romance, which showcases the various ways to approach a ballad as a solo guitarist.

Sean guides you through walking basslines, chord jabs, and triplet rhythms, as you work through a medium tempo 12-Bar blues in the key of B flat. It’s Old Fashioned mixes it up with stop-time breaks and single-note lead lines.

Featuring an intro cadenza, counterpoint, and various substitution techniques, Rainbow explores a number of harmonic strategies for solo guitar. And finally, you’ll round out your repertoire with an uptempo piece that integrates blistering bebop lines with rapid chords and double stops.

Sean will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the performance studies. Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tools to sync the tab and notation to the video lesson. You can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace.

Grab your guitar and let’s play fingerstyle jazz with Sean McGowan!
