Interactive Video Masterclass on Soul Jazz Guitar
The “soul” of jazz is a common thread that runs through virtually every style of contemporary music — from neo-soul and modern funk to urban-driven-pop and R&B. While Mark Whitfield’s roots and influences stem from what’s considered straight-ahead traditional jazz, his interests lie in combining his early jazz influences with the innovations of today’s music.

In this course, you’ll explore 10 musical “situations” that players may encounter today in a jam or in the studio on a recording project. Mark covers a variety of styles, tempos, and keys. For each situation, you’ll start with just a rhythm track or particular groove that Mark has encountered himself in a performing or recording scenario.

Mark will explain what he’s hearing and how that might trigger a creative approach. He’ll then demonstrate how he might complement that groove with a rhythm guitar part and solo — both of which embrace what he calls the ‘soul’ of jazz. After the rhythm and soloing performances, Mark breaks them down emphasizing the techniques and creative approaches in play.

You’ll play through situations incorporating minor one-six-two-five changes, Joe Henderson inspired major seven reharmonizations, a funky Curtis Mayfield inspired groove, summertime changes, bebop infused bossa nova, laid back ballads, and hip-hop inspired beats layered with arpeggiated motion and staccato straight/swing hybrids.
