For many musicians, going out to the local jam and playing with friends is their primary, if not only musical outlet. The goal of Andy Aledort’s Jam Night series is to broaden your skills as both a rhythm guitarist and soloist, with specific instruction directed within the scope of standard, tried-and-true open jam night songs.Each volume of the series includes 10 of the most popular songs played at open jams, all over the world on a nightly basis. The Jam Night series will help you develop your rhythm guitar and soloing chops while teaching you a variety of ways to navigate through popular music’s most common song progressions and stylings.Jam Night: Volume 2 is designed with specific musical styles presented in pairs: two songs in the classic Soul/R&B style, two songs in the Rock ‘n’ Roll style of the Rolling Stones, two songs structured in the style of classic Chicago Blues, two Jimi Hendrix-type song progressions and two examples representative of a Reggae style.The progressions and grooves are patterned after Sitting On The Dock of the Bay, In the Midnight Hour, Dead Flowers, Honky Tonk Women, Key to the Highway, Sweet Home Chicago, Like a Rolling Stone, Hey Joe, I Shot the Sheriff, and No Woman No Cry.Working with Andy’s Jam Night series will equip you with the three most important skills you’ll need to take to the jam stage; command of the popular song list, a diverse rhythm guitar vocabulary, and the ability to improvise fresh solos over popular song progressions.
Improvising Over Popular Progressions: Jam songs are selected because they’re familiar to players and audiences alike, AND they provide an interesting and very jam-friendly progression to play over. Your blues chops will certainly be helpful BUT they won’t take you all the way there. You MUST be able to navigate your improvisations through a variety of other 3- and 4-chord progressions.
For each of these 10 popular jams, Andy will first overview the vibe, structure and progression of the tune. He’ll then demonstrate and breakdown two rhythm guitar approaches, and then two lead guitar approaches — 20 rhythm approaches and 20 lead approaches in all.
Everything is tabbed and notated, plus you’ll get all of the rhythm tracks to work with on your own.
Your rite of passage to the jam bandstand is now just a click away…
