The Music & Guitar Stylings of John Scofield


This course explores the characteristic guitar style of John Scofield- specifically his rock and blues influence, post-bop language, sound effects, and more. These techniques and harmonic concepts will be taught primarily through written transcription and analysis, but also through listening to recordings and the instructor’s pre-transcribed content. His characteristic techniques will be applied to the improvised sections of both Scofield’s original tunes and to some standard jazz chord progressions in an interactive ensemble setting.
