Lesson By Steve Down
This video is the last installment of the lesson series on the funky Kenny Burrell version of "My Favorite Things" from his 1966 album "Soulero". In this last lesson (please consider watching the 7 previous) we finish off by looking at the final head, the outro solo and I give you my top 5 take aways from the series complete with some extra example licks!
Have fun practicing!
You will find here 11 Jazz Blues backing tracks from the YouTube channel Backing Tracks Channel. These jam tracks can be very useful for practicing improvisation and chord comping whether on the guitar or on any other instrument.
Each play along is derived from the basic jazz blues chord progression (the first one of the list). For a better understanding the chords and the Roman numeral analysis are displayed in the video. If you want to learn more about these jazz blues changes check out the related lesson in the blog section.
