Larry Coryell: Blues and Beyond

A last glimpse into the genius of Larry Coryell and his concepts

Larry Coryell, one of jazz fusion’s pioneering guitarists and also known to many as the “Godfather of Fusion,” gives one very last glimpse into his craft genius of guitar playing and an in-depth view of his artistry.

In the mid-to-late Sixties, Coryell broke down genre barriers with his eclectic, fluid playing and experimenting with melding thunderous and driving rock rhythms with spacious jazz chords.

Yet as a true eclectic, armed with a brilliant technique, he was comfortable in almost every style, covering almost every base from the most decibel-heavy, distortion-laden electric work, to the most delicate, soothing, intricate lines on acoustic guitar or phrasing and note-bending that owed as much to blues, rock and even country as it did to earlier, smoother Bebop influences.

Coryell put out dozens of solo and ensemble releases throughout the Seventies up through to the present day, recording with alongside famous names like Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Kenny Barron, Chet Baker, Stéphane Grappelli, Gary Burton, John McLaughlin, Ron Carter, Chick Corea, Paco De Lucia, Miroslav Vitouš and many other noteworthy artists of all styles.

We at tagapublishing.com have been privileged and honored to record and also deeply analyze Larry’s fascinating approach to the guitar and improvisation, before his unfortunate passing on February 19th, 2017.

We are proud to present to you the last guitar lesson of a true legend who set milestones and truly deserves a special place in the history books.

Blues and Beyond” gives you one last glimpse into Larry’s  genius.

Experience for one more time the advanced mind of a legendary guitarist who was always innovating and someone who was always trying to push the boundaries a bit further.

In the first half of this interactive video course, Larry shares priceless insights and ingenious methods to help you discover and get started in the following:

  • Basic Blues playing
  • Basic Jazz blues playing
  • Pentatonic ideas
  • Charlie Parker inspired ideas and much more…

Very much the same approach to topics he used to achieve his own mastery of the instrument and unparalleled success as a professional musician.

Topics and methods presented in the second half of the course include:

  • I-VI-II-V chord playing
  • Line playing
  • Tritone substitutions
  • Melodic Minor examples
  • Diminished scale usage
  • Double Stops
  • Big Band feels
  • Song examples of  “Cry me a river,” ”Summertime” and even his own composition “The Dragon Gate.”
  • and much MUCH more….

All of the performances are tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes.

You’ll also get supported by the newest Soundslice technology.  The cursor automatically follows the tab and notation so that you can play, speed up or slow down, loop, and even see a virtual fretboard,  WHILE you work through the material.

Blues and Beyond: A last glimpse into the genius of Larry Coryell and his concepts is not only about learning Larry’s licks and it’s certainly not a traditional learning experience.  You too will need to immerse yourself in his mind to truly understand and absorb the seminal teachings contained within its architecture.

Blues and Beyond: A last glimpse into the genius of Larry Coryell and his concepts is a dream come true for all of us here at TAGA Publishing.  We can’t thank Larry enough for trusting us with this project and we are thrilled to present to you, Mr. Larry Coryell!

  1. Jon Ellison

    Fantastic blues study. A lifetime worth of study presented here! Great many playing examples that one can utilize immediately. Basic concepts are presented –then LC demonstrates–very inspirational. Long live Larry Coryell!

  2. Charles Li

    It so nice to see Larry teaching again. I took a lesson with him a long time ago and he taught me so much!

  3. Takumi Nakayama

    I like this lesson very much. I wish it was in Japanese.

  4. Jason Roman

    Larry truly is the Godfather of Fusion. He also loved teaching so I am glad that he did this. He was a great teacher and was very passionate about it. This course is called Blues but there is so much more here. I really am glad I got it!

  5. Tracey Groves

    very nicely thoughtout course – larry goes back to the blues and introduces a lot of the concepts and ideas that make his playing so great

  6. Marcus Livingstone


  7. Sam Goldberg

    The interactive part is extremely helpful. It’s good to be able to slow Larry’s playing right down and loop his phrases and lines. The quality is excellent throughout and the transcriptions are spot on. He takes us from the basics, and gradually introduces new ideas. The longer pieces are superb. I already knew the basic blues progression, but the longer pieces will take me a bit of time to get under the fingers. My only criticism is that I would have liked to see more emphasis on Larry’s fusion side. Otherwise highly recommended.

  8. Collin McRae

    It’s so nice to see Larry one last time! I used to idolize him a lot back in the day! He teaches a lot of beautiful jazzy things and being able to slow videos down really helps. There is definitely something for everybody in this course.

  9. Amir Shaffir

    I was really surprised finding this recent lesson with the great Larry Corryell. This course gets quite advanced and difficult right away, so be aware that you are at a certain level in your jazzguitar playing level, otherwise very good information.

  10. Yannick Trunzer

    Always loved Larrys playing, great course and great value.
