My Experiences with Henry Johnson's "Jazz Expressions" Course.


The past week has found me consolidating the four Gmaj7 inversions, scales and arpeggios I discussed last week. I have been practicing using these to improvise over the Gmaj7 chords in each position. I have also been using Frank Vignola's "Ten Rhythms 70 Example Riffs" lessons to give me ideas to improve my improvised lines.


Here is a short video to demonstrate where I am with this practice, (you will notice I have many more hours of practice to do yet), I'm just at the beginning.

Using Henry's Jazz Expressions course, I am now starting to learn some Gmin7 inversions and repeat the scale and arpeggio studies, more on this next week. If I get time with all the other, Chord Melody and maintaining my repertoire work I have planed, I will add a couple more of Frank's riffs.
