Johann Sebastian Bach composed this piece as part of a suite for lute. It has since become one of the most popular works in the classical guitar repertoire. It is in the key of E minor which is the same as the key of G major. Bourrée uses only two voices—a melody and a bass line—often times moving in opposite directions. Occasionally a non-standard fingering is required and those fingerings are notated with the small numbers above or beside certain notes. Performance tempo should be 98 bpm. Arrangement by Steve Krenz.

The song “Wildwood Flower” was first recorded by the Carter family in the 1920s. It has become a standard for bluegrass guitarists to know ever since. Maybelle Carter played the song in C on guitar but often capoed up so it actually sounded in a higher key when she sang along.

One of the most important progressions in Jazz is called the turnaround. Turnarounds are often four separate chords over a two-bar phrase whose purpose is to connect the phrase that just happened with the one that is coming.

Wouldn’t it be great to look at a chord and immediately have a great sounding arpeggio to play over it anywhere on the neck? The arpeggio forms in this lesson can get you there. With a little time and effort learning the forms, you’ll get a tremendous payoff in your playing and soloing. This lesson focuses on jazz arpeggios, specifically seventh chord arpeggios. You’ll learn arpeggios for major 7th chords, minor 7th chords, dominant 7th chords, and even a half-diminished 7th chord. Add in some hammer-ons and pull-offs to make them smooth and fast.

This lesson covers one of the most helpful chords you’ll ever know—some might even say it’s the ultimate jazz chord, the tritone augmented chord. Don’t let the complex name fool you. This chord is relatively easy to form and gives an immediate “jazz” sound to almost any chord progression.

Johann Sebastian Bach composed this piece around 1710 as part of a much larger work. It has since become one of the most recognizable melodies in the world. It is in the key of G with a consistent triplet pattern used throughout. Occasionally a non-standard fingering is required and those fingerings are notated with the small numbers above or beside certain notes. Performance tempo should be 40 bpm. Arrangement by Steve Krenz.

Four-time Grammy winner, Larry Carlton, was one of LA’s top studio guitarists during the 70s-80s. Much of the music we associate with that time period was the work of Larry Carlton. Larry is still as active as ever playing and touring all over the world. Larry Carlton is known for his lyrical soloing. He has described his approach to soloing in a concept called the “Super Arpeggio.” If you’re tired of playing old licks and pentatonic patterns when you solo, then check out this super arpeggio concept for a fresh way to get some exciting new sounds when you solo.
