I'm curious: I'm studying the guitar master classes right now and would like to complete the jazz guitar master class along with the jazz piano master class. What is the intended time frame to complete each lesson?

I'll try to rephrase and be more clear...Is one lesson per week the norm? I'm curious to hear from other folks who are doing the master classes and see what kind of practice schedule works best. I started in on the jazz guitar master class and realized I had to backtrack to the easier lessons (Beginner guitar master class 1-3) because it moves a bit fast for my current skill level.....Is it better to keep moving through the lessons even if they are not "Mastered?" rather than to master each midi exercise before moving forward?

Jeffgee,

I would think this would be highly variable, depending on lots of factors - how frequently you practice, how much you play, starting level, etc. I can't ever seem to make it past the chord method in Jazz Guitar Master Class because there's just so darn many chords and inversions to try to learn : (

I certainly don't think you could "master" this within a week, even if I had way more time to practice than I do. You probably shouldn't aim to "master" an exercise before going on, but continue to work on ones you've "completed", as well as incorporating "new" lessons into your practice sessions.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah the lesson on the chord method is really tough and when Oliver does the midi exercise of all inversions of the F7 with 8th notes...man I don't know if in my lifetime I'll get there. ...I really enjoy the lessons. I have a goal to complete the jazz guitar and jazz piano master class but it is hard to know when to move on to new lessons and how will I know if I've completed the program?....There doesn't seem to be any kind of evaluations so that the student will know how he/she is progressing. they are great lessons though:)

I don't think it translates into time. Its a matter of cleverness. thinking right. I spent a year on lesson3 shifting into several keys and not losing track of chord inversions. The jazz piano master class is pretty involved. This is the real evolution. It is not simple dumb piano parts. Over time I notice my thinking has changed. That is what you should look for.

Keep practicing the chord inversions starting with the F7 up and down - this has been the most rewarding experience over time especially on the high 4 strings. I didn't like the scales section as it's not how I learn best (prefer to learn real solos/phrases) but the chords seem to be easier since they are easy to visualize. It's painful at first to switch (like a beginner guitarist has with open chords) but gets easier. I like to visualize each chord in my mind when I'm not playing guitar as well which helps.

PS for a great practical application I would get the essential jazz guitar vol1 (high strings) for starters - lots of great chord combos to use for comping. I had the pleasure to meet Oliver Gannon at Beatniq in Calgary and he's a very fine player and gentleman!

Hi Jeffgee

Dont forget that while learning from a software program or some internet "school" or website are helpful. They are no substitute for a face to face teacher......I think we should look at these Instructional DVDs/Cds books/software programs and Internet schools as supplemental learning. I would ask your teacher these questions.

As far as time goes,its not a race.take your time have fun and make sure you are using these new voicings when you actually play standards. The Midi tracks are a nice practice tool but make sure you get them in your playing......BBB
