Tuscany Jazz and Blues Guitar Workshop with Garrison Fewell
Certaldo, Italy, 12–16 June 2012

In this workshop, you will learn how to improvise better solos and build phrases naturally by exploring the potential of triads and their melodic extensions. Garrison will teach you how to develop a more melodic way of thinking about harmony, and learn the improvisational tools that will help you create your own approach to soloing over chord changes.

You will learn to create solo phrases in the styles of some of the world's finest jazz guitarists—Jim Hall, Grant Green, Kenny Burrell, Wes Montgomery and Pat Martino.
