A real master!

JazzMaster Product Review:
I have quite a few Conti courses and I think he is a great nuts-and-bolts teacher, especially be-bop soloing. I haven't found anyone who offers so many chord substitutions. He shows how to play a tune that has maybe 6 - 8 chords and use maybe 40 - 50 choices. Mind boggling at first but when you figure him out, he's WOW!

A little gem

JazzMaster Product Review:
This course is a little gem among the many Truefire course. At first, you might be thrown by the old-timey production, but actually there's a ton of great information. Conti, a real master of jazz, take you measure by measure of solos for three different types of jazz tunes. However, it's not a just a play-this-note, play-that-note course. Conti tells you the substitutions he's thinking of when playing the line and there are some great comping ideas too. By the end of the course, you'll have a lot of great moves to add to your vocabulary. Definitely worth the time and money for this course.

Fascinating and Different

Review on Jazz Master product:
This is my first experience with Conti's methodology and it's fascinating - unusual compared with most other approaches, but it seems to work! Looking forward to trying some of the others.

Wow I'm getting there...

Review on "Jazz Master" Product:
Wow, Robert Conti blazes across the fretboard, and I'm thinking I'm never going to do any of this. But slowly putting small chunks together, and practice exactly how Mr. Conti tells you and Wow I'm getting there.

Like his explanation of....

Review on "Jazz Master" Product:
I like his explanation of fingering the left hand and that he explains that he has transcribed a jazz standard do that it fits within a box. I think it is a fantastic idea and will be working on it as I go through the course.

The Signature Chord Melody Arrangements Series

If you can play a chord grid, you can play these harmonically rich arrangements.

For those who are unaware, Robert Conti’s chord melody arrangements are a favorite reader feature in every issue of Just Jazz Guitar magazine.

The Problem

In the world of jazz guitar, almost every chord solo arrangement is written in notation and tablature, which is often discouraging and perhaps, the very reason why most guitarists steer clear of solo playing.

The Conti Approach

Robert Conti eliminates any guess work on your part because he is concerned enough to take the time to include the correct chord grid for every note in the melody line.  In several arrangements, Conti includes multiple rows of chord grids to demonstrate harmonic choices for the player.  The choice is always left to player preference, as either upper or lower row is acceptable.

Players are also urged to experiment with varying combinations of the chords to create new harmonic palettes. While many guitarists do not read notes, every guitarist can read a chord grid, and the ability to play that simple grid will allow any guitarist to actually play a great arrangement. Every Conti arrangement offers clear proof of his determination to be certain that guitarists of even minimum skill, will be able to play these arrangements.
