Armen Movsesyan: Jazzify Your Blues

 

Picture ANY of your favorite contemporary Jazz guitar players RIGHT NOW.

 

So do you have someone in mind?

Whoever you are picturing right now, fantasizing or idolizing about, let us tell you that all younger Jazz guitarists may play and compose very unique, new, creative and contemporary music and THEY ALL have many influences from different places and styles flowing into their music in this day and age.

Music trends change rapidly.  But ONE THING is for sure.  They know the traditional language of a Jazz Blues.  They ALL are able to speak the language of past generations.  They ALL have checked out the greats such as Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, George Benson, etc…

Being able to speak and communicate in the language of the previous generations will ALWAYS be a part of today’s players.

You would be surprised at how many of the young and upcoming generation of guitar players have a very strong fundamental knowledge and understanding of the Jazz Blues.

If you play any style of contemporary music from this century, the blues is genetically tied to it in one way or another.

 

But let’s take another short angle for a second…

Which genre of music do you think is one of the oldest and most influential when it comes to playing an electric guitar?

The one genre that started the evolution of countless great players.

You are right, it’s the Blues.

And in its more advanced form called a Jazz Blues.

 

Now let us be honest with you.

We will be completely straight with you.

 

If YOU are the person who has a handle on your basic blues playing, you’ve mastered all the  necessary chords, learned a few phrases here and there from your favorite guitar players, you’ve picked up several licks and rhythms from your favorite songs, and you have just have reached the point where you have achieved a sense of “I’m doing fine now!”

 

If this is YOU

 

Then you must have encountered this ONE BIG WALL  when it comes to improving and approaching your blues playing.  Everybody reaches this point.  You must have naturally asked yourself the question ”WHAT’S NEXT?

 

The simple truth is that there are MANY pieces to the puzzle of jazz guitar and you cannot possibly grasp the whole picture when you are just starting out because there is NO “ultimate way”

 

Annoying isn’t it?

 

Nevertheless being able to play a Jazz Blues is definitely one HUGE piece of the puzzle and part of the game.  All of your favorite artists from the past decades to the present day have played a Jazz Blues.

 

Still not convinced?

 

You don’t have to analyze and transcribe your favorite players to realize how common playing a Jazz Blues is.  But one thing’s for sure, if you really dig deep enough you will ALWAYS find fragments, pieces of a solid foundation of Jazz Blues playing, in EVERY great Improviser’s solos.  THEY ALL learned at some point the words, phrases, and vocabulary of a Jazz Blues.

It’s ALL part of the “Language.”

But be warned, you could wander around FOR YEARS and waste your valuable time and energy picking up information here and there, trying to understand the “whole picture” of what is necessary for jazz improvisation.

 

Here comes the good news…

 

TAGA Publishing proudly presents to you Jazzify Your Blues by Armen Movsesyan.

  1. Giovanni Rava

    The quality of PDF’s and videos is really well done, but this course was a bit too difficult for me. I can kind of play blues, but this is very jazz. I need to practice more

  2. Raul Ortiz

    Armen is a good player. I didn’t know about him until now, he definitely helped jazz up my Blues so far! Thanks for that!

  3. Ulf Mikkelson

    Cool lines! Armen demonstrates very important phrases of Wes Montgomery and Kenny Burrell. It’s a good mix of traditional and modern phrases. The Soundslice technology is really good to practice and should keep you busy practicing for a while. Really liked this!

  4. Luis Silva

    This course was not for me. I am a more traditional player.

  5. Robby Callaway

    Armen is such a great player and I am so happy to learn from him. I wish one day I can play half as good as him.

  6. Cesar Ferrante

    Good but kind of advanced for me.

  7. Not For Beginners

    I bought this thinking there was going to be some beginner/intermediate comping. Not so.
    The “Easy Bb Comping and Easy Eb Comping” was not easy at all. Right off the bat was difficult and laborious.
    Although Armen is an excellent jazz player, he could have started off a bit slower and work up to the more “Difficult Bb and Eb Comping”.

    • Thank you for your comments. We agree that he should have started a bit easier and worked up to the difficult comping. We will speak to him about this to see what he can do. We will be contacting you privately as well to discuss this further.
