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.

4 reviews for Vol. 4 Satin Doll

  1. Dave Ruggiero, Summit, NJ

    With this being my first foray into the intermediate/advanced level bebop improvisation, I was impressed with both the lines themselves and the presentation of the lesson. What was an originally a flurry of notes followed by “what the hell was that?” became lines that are being worked into my own vocabulary. The lines themselves challenged both my left and right hand techniques and the effort has paid off as they have both improved tremendously.

    The other benefit to this DVD from an educational perspective, at least from the standpoint of someone making a shift from the Ticket to Improv series, is that once the bulk of the Ticket to Improv series got under my hands and once I started understanding the lines, ideas and underlying harmonic concepts in that series, I was able to see them in this DVD, thereby making the learning far less steep and providing an important first step and confidence to tackle the challenge. This speaks as much for the Ticket to Improv series for its ability to prepare students as much as it does for this DVD to further increase that knowledge and ability to play.

    As I’ve mentioned before, the ability to obtain results speaks volume about an educator’s ability to educate as well as the credibility associated with the ability to deliver the results promised. Robert Conti has hit a home run on both counts!

    Just got through previewing the Smoking Lineman and Chord Melody DVDs. The production and approach is fantastic. Just the way I have felt a teaching product should be made and marketed for many years. For those of us with limited time and passion for jazz guitar this is perfect! I will start practicing this weekend!
