 Mike Stern: Burn with Stern!

 

If you are the person who transitioned from Rock Guitar to Jazz Guitar or tried to get into this thing called “Jazz,”there is NO WAY that you have not encountered his name.  There is NO WAY around this iconic guitar hero.

He literally stands RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE between two worlds and has been the “go-to guitar hero” for many guitarists wanting to advance.

For three decades now, this several time Grammy Award-nominated guitarist has been able to speak TWO LANGUAGES and has just found the RIGHT FREQUENCY to communicate with countless upcoming generations of guitar players and music lovers worldwide.  He is able to speak and communicate to Rock audiences AS WELL as to Jazz audiences with the same amount of impact.

AND EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN.

Not only that, but his guitar playing has influenced Rock guys to get into Jazz and vice versa, Jazz guys into appreciating Rock.

But why is that?

Some people resonate with his compositional work.  Some people immediately get hooked by his flashy lines.  Some folks might recognize him from playing with Miles Davis, Michael Brecker, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Jaco Pastorius, David Sanborn, Billy Cobham, John Patitucci, Jack DeJohnette and many more…

You know by now who we are talking about here right?

MIKE STERN

The reality is that MIKE STERN is one of the rare guitarists that is not only an amazing player but also has created a world “around” his guitar playing.

Building a world around your guitar is the one essential step that it takes to leave a neverending imprint on fans and people’s minds forever.

So we can’t stress the word ARTIST enough.

Anybody on this planet who takes that special step deserves a place on the Mount Rushmore of guitarists.

Now how do you think Mike was able to achieve this level of artistry?

 

First of all, how do you think this ALL STARTED for Mike Stern?  All of the “Big” players must have practiced something that nobody else or average has done before right?  They must have some “secrets” right?

BUT IT ALL STARTED WITH UNDERSTANDING THE BASICS.

IT ALL BEGAN FOR HIM WITH GETTING COMFORTABLE WITH THE FOUNDATIONS.

  10. Loved it

    Saw Mike, Edmond, and Mr. Morello in Woodbridge this weekend and again was blown away. I was familiar with the chord instruction in this lesson already, but really got a lot out of how Mike phrases and approaches the blues. the transcripts let me really focus on specific areas that have helped me break away from sounding to “scalar” or mechanical. Even the four note groupings give me insight to how he makes those scales/arpeggios more melodic.

    Thanks a bunch
