Conti plays a pro level (more challenging than the Ticket To Improv series) solo over the chord changes to an in-demand jazz tune. Then, in his straight-forward approach, he teaches you to duplicate the entire solo, close-up, measure-by-measure, note-by-note. As documented by scores students in written testimonials, and their performance videos, you learn to play jazz, by playing jazz, not talking about modes or scales.
You must get the idea out of your head that you’re “just learning someone else’s solo.” When a child learns to speak, he/she emulates words that they have heard before. No one says to the child, “you’re just learning someone else’s words.” The child learns a word, then another word. The pattern continues until the child can speak in complete sentences (and without knowing the “theory” behind language.) As you develop your jazz vocabulary, you’ll soon reshape the ideas for applications over other tunes. These DVDs are for you if you’ve got serious chops, but don’t know what to do with them. If you practice modes and scales all the time, that’s what your solos will sound like – boring and uninteresting to say the least. Learn hip jazz lines, and have lots of fun doing it.
Thought I'd drop you a line, because in your video you said you enjoyed getting e-mail. I own all Three Videos plus Two of your books. If anyone who buys your videos does not improve their level of playing, it's only because their level of ability will not allow them. Big City Blues was very easy to understand and duplicate (however, it did take a little
time getting the timing down) I also got all the lines to The Sound of Rio. However, the timing was difficult along with sweep picking and speed. But in time I'm sure will be just fine. I prefer the videos simply because all you have to do is copy exactly what your doing, then practice the lines till you have the results you're looking for.
Hello, you may remember me as the guy who bought Robert's double gig bag in the 7 11 parking lot. Anyway I have worked my way through the big city blues series I bought and now want the next series. Don't know which package that is so please advise. But I want the same monkey see monkey do format. This works well for me. I went from sounding like one big major scale to being melodic. Please thank Robert for all his effort. Also what I see in his DVDs is someone who cares about my playing. Not just someone who wants to cash a check. Thanks again.
I'm mostly into more and more sophisticated blues, so I just purchased Bob's super Big City Blues DVD. I have to tell you, my blues soloing shall never again be the same or even approach boring! Bob's direct yet thorough lessons have been soaked up by me like a dry sponge! Just super licks and continuity I can forever use in whatever I play. Bob is like having your favorite uncle teach you guitar but only on the condition that I take it all seriously and concentrate....there's no fluff here! Just super concepts and encouragement and I love it!! Thanks!!
I've purchased more than 10 of your DVDs Guitar Lesson, I was learning so hard during the last 3 months. Now I know you are the best teacher in the world. Your approach is clear and wonderful sound. Really now I am more confident when play and Jam session with Jazz musician in town. Your lessons make me a much better player. Thank you so much.
Bob, Every so often, I have to visit your web page to see what you're up to and what's new. Wow... so much smokin' stuff. Upstairs in the studio in JAX in '85-'86, you gave me the weapons on my instrument to revolutionize my art for a lifetime. I came in, ready to learn, ready to soak it all up like a sponge, and that stuff is still floatin' around up in my bean. I still use the blue picks, and I string my axe up with the biggest strings I can stand..ha...NO UNWOUND 3rd STRINGS..haha... Jim
Hi! My name is Moises, I'm a great Mr. Robert Conti's fan and I think he's a great musician and a great teacher too. The DVDs are very interesting and Mr. Conti open a door and if you work hard, you can get into jazz world. I'm working now in the second DVD and it's wonderful (Georgia) Thank you again for the files, you're a good professional team.Moisés Frias Infante
I got your Georgia CD yesterday. I took it to the school where I teach. First I looked at the book and thought, there is no way I can play this. Then, I was amazed at how Mr. Conti could so easily dissect those complicated runs and explain them. I think I will get it. Thanks.
