Mike DeMicco - You Can Play Jazz Guitar! - Vol 1 - DVD
Jazz guitarist Mike DeMicco gives you a complete understanding of what jazz guitar is all about, taking you through a wide variety of scales, modes, arpeggios and chord voicings, then teaching you how to practice them so you can move around the fingerboard with ease. The enormous amount of information presented here will be invaluable to you in all situations, whether you're jamming on simple chord progressions or approaching a complex jazz standard. Mike provides numerous exercises and plays musical examples to illustrate the techniques he teaches. You'll gain an understanding of the fretboard and the elements of music theory - all the tools you'll need to start playing jazz. For the lesson's culmination, Mike teaches his original tune "Just Too Minor" which features a melodic "head" (or melody) followed by a variety of comping and soloing ideas. When Mike is joined by Vinnie Martucci on keyboards and Rich Syracuse on bass, the ensemble perfectly demonstrates how it all fits together!

Mike DeMicco - You Can Play Jazz Guitar! - Vol 2 - DVD
Now it's time to dig deeper into jazz improvisation in styles ranging from bebop to jazz blues. On this second DVD, jazz guitarist Mike DeMicco presents a full range of soloing ideas designed to expand your knowledge of the guitar in one quantum leap! Mike starts off with an in-depth look at the II-V-I progression and the relationships between chords, scales and modes. Through dozens of examples, including scale and chord comping exercises in all the keys and his own composition "Lydian Grin" he explains sharp 9 and flat 9/flat 5 chords, the evocative Dorian and Lydian modes, and how to create solos over some dazzling chord changes! Mike examines styles developed by Mike Stern, Tal Farlow, John Coltrane, Wes Montgomery and others, and shows you how to create passing tones, solo lines, octave passages and personal improvisations. He closes the DVD with an exploration of jazz-blues, getting you into this popular form through his swinging original "Dues Blues".

Mike DeMicco - You Can Play Jazz Guitar! - Vol 3 - DVD
The mark of a great jazz musician is his or her ability to make a personal, unique statement. This third DVD in the series provides invaluable insights into how you, as a developing jazz guitarist, can create your own distinctive style. Starting with his bebop-oriented tune "Boptology", Mike DeMicco teaches you how to build creative solos, challenging you to find your own voice in jazz. The head, or melody, of this tune is a complete study tool on it's own as it encompasses a compelling syntheses of several jazz styles. Mike then uses Victor Young's classic standard "Love Letters" to analyze chord melody and develop ideas for soloing. He shows you how to utilize the diminished and whole tone scales over dominant 7th chords and demonstrates how to connect what you hear to what you play. "The Improviser's Friend," a handy chart explaining how to use the melodic minor scale over several chord types, is included in the written text which accompanies this lesson. This DVD is essential learning for anyone who wants to play powerful, creative jazz guitar!
