Play What You Hear is a self-study course for jazz guitar. It was created by Chris Standring, a jazz guitarist and recording artist who has already recorded 8 individual albums (his latest CD is entitled Love & Paragraphs) and has featured as a guest on many others. With "Play What You Hear" course, Chris Standring wanted to give aspiring jazz musicians an effective, practical and easy-to-understand approach to improving their jazz improvisation skills. The ultimate goal of this course is, as the title suggests, to have you become a musician that can ‘play what you hear'.
The course covers everything, from recognizing sounds against harmonies, playing melodies up and down the fretboard, learning how to construct even the most advanced jazz chords (without having to memorize all of the shapes), completely familiarizing yourself with the fretboard, so you can play anywhere you like without having to look down at the guitar neck, and be able to hear things that you were never able to hear before... In fact, Chris Standring promises that this course alone will give you enough jazz guitar instructions to last you the next 15 years.
You can get Play What You Hear course on a CD, shipped to your doorstep, or you can simply download it to your computer. To choose the option best suited for you, visit the product's website.
