- Issue 17 - Stella by Starlight: When you hear the words chord melody, you often think of very complex arrangements where you have one chord for every note in the melody line. While you can use this approach to build chord melodies in, there are other options when combining chords and melodies on the fretboard. In this lesson you will learn how to play 3rds and 7ths, how to build a chord melody, and how to play a chord melody for the jazz standard Stella by Starlight.
- Issue 18 - Wes Montgomery Jazz Waltzes: As most of us start studying the 4/4 time signature when first exploring jazz guitar, the 3/4 jazz waltz feel can sometimes feel a bit awkward or be intimidating to study. One of the best players to study in order to build confidence and vocabulary over when soloing over a jazz waltz is Wes Montgomery.
