Free Jazz Guitar Lesson: Approach Notes & Neighbor Tones
Apr 8

In preparing for the launch of our new online Jazz Guitar School with Chuck Loeb, we recently released a sample lesson where Chuck breaks down The 6 Positions (a fundamental scale concept in his jazz guitar lessons). While The 6 Positions will help you to learn the geography of the fretboard, "approach notes" are a way to introduce notes outside of the key so you can incorporate some chromaticism into your jazz lines.

"All we're doing is surrounding each note of the triad."

Chuck demonstrates how it's done by starting with a simple chord progression going from A to D.
