Getting started – Scales of C, F and G Major and chord voicings for 2 5 1 in those keys.

In this first lesson you will learn how to play with a jazz feel using a simple scale, and then how to improvise over over 2 note chord voicings– it’s that easy. (But make sure you use the correct two notes, as gigs have been lost over such confusion!)
