Description

The time-tested and acknowledged pathway to become a skilled improvisor is to play your instrument at every jam session or other opportunity that becomes available. That’s exactly how the early greats learned their craft, simply by playing jazz, not wasting time talking about modes, scales or unimportant activities that prevented them from actually playing their instruments. As seen in 25 prior DVDs, the core success of the Robert Conti approach is his ability to teach the jazz language (improv) at the street level, where it actually began.

If you’re an entry level jazz guitarist such as a blues or rock player trying to make the crossover to jazz, Ticket To Improv will take you on one of most exciting and productive musical events of your life. Very soon, you will be impressing your friends with your new playing skills.

As in each of his learning products, once again, Conti delivers another “Motherlode!” How? By teaching you exactly how to start playing an arsenal of lines over the chord progressions to three “must know” tunes that are played in every real life jam session. More importantly, after you learn the first three tunes, he will also teach you how to quickly begin reshaping those lines for usage in other tunes.

  • Bonus Jam over a Conti original, “The Rummy!”

Grateful you do what you do

For lack of a better word, Robert, you're awesome, thank you, I've been looking for material like this for a long time. I knew there had to be a different way, and this is it! As I am not getting any younger, in short, I am grateful you do what you do. Would like to meet you sometime. Best Wishes, Art

Conti is my guiding light

I would like to once again tell you that Bob Conti is my guiding light, through the murky waters of guitar instruction out here, what a wonderful person to be so open and offer to us mere mortals out here in guitar land his talents! I listen to Jazz every day and of all the players and all the courses out there Bob is the best PERIOD! I am still not advanced enough for much of the material and still in the improv #3 but as soon as #4 comes out I will be on it. I hope to someday get to Vegas so I can see Bob in person..

chord melodies...best out there

I have the TTI Volumes 1, 2, and 3.. The chord melodies that Mr Conti offers (free might I add), IMHO are the best out there. They're easy to understand, and they are always hip.. If there is a better way to get this quality of teaching, I've yet to find it.. Thanx for all you do!

All Sorts Of Doors Will Open

Wow! - This stuff is getting better all the time! I can't believe how the barriers are falling - It's like Bob said: "All sorts of doors will open, and all sorts of lights will start to go on" - They are! My right hand fingers are pretty much automatic now, and my performance passable on almost 3 songs. Even the open 6th string Em9 chord at the 7th fret is finally getting tamed as well. It was hard to play that clean at a reasonably fast speed when you're passing through a sequence and combining a finger roll at the same time! lol Still, as with all this stuff, you know EXACTLY what you SHOULD be playing, so the obstacles are only physical and not mental. One particular 'light that's turned on' is that there is absolutely no need to be stressed with any of this - (Yeah Bob I finally GOT that one! lol) When I follow what Bob says on the DVD's "everything else DOES take care of itself" - I know, I've proved it myself. Sorry for hogging the testimonials board, but this stuff is so good I can't keep it to myself. Jules. Awe inspiring tuition from a man at the top of his game.Jules.

easier when the teacher is a master player

Never had time to learn guitar until now. So I bought the improv series (and the Conti guitar) about 6 months ago. It was a little tough at the begining. But like the man says "it's not rocket science.." Thank you Mr. Conti.. All it takes is a will to learn, and a lot of practice. It is a little easier when the teacher is a master player.

Best $25 I ever spent on jazz guitar

If you want to learn jazz guitar there are only two words you need to know ROBERT CONTI! Just received TICKET TO IMPROV and i am amazed this was the best $25.00 i ever spent on guitar instruction and i have tons of books. Mr. Conti makes jazz guitar fun. i don't give a **** if you know which mode goes over the I IV IIV progression, i want to make music this dvd makes music fun while teaching. Pop the dvd in your computer, grab your guitar and start to blow over changes! If you want to explain why you used the flatted F# over the II IV IIV change go to Berkley if you want to make music and have fun go to ROBERT CONTI! Looking forward to the next lessons while i work on the first video Thank you Mr. Conti.
