Rhythmic Grooves thoroughly examines how rhythmic patterns are constructed, executed and applied to various styles of music. This intensive study program will turn your whole understanding of rhythm right-side up. You'll start at ground zero "playing drums" on the guitar and learning how to get "in the pocket" and stay there. You'll progress into the "ring/dead" technique with a variety of right-hand picking combinations. Slurs and ties are then introduced with techniques for deleting pick strokes. These approaches are then applied to creating and executing "bubble parts" for maximum groove. You'll learn to master double and triple subdivision patterns, advanced cross-rhythms and triplet rhythms. In short, Rhythmic Grooves will overhaul every aspect of your rhythm skills. TrueFire's resident educational guru, Brad Carlton authored Groove Builder as a follow-up to his highly popular Rhythmic Grooves curriculum; however the material is an ideal stand-alone course for students with a relatively solid grasp of rhythmic figures.

Top session player, Brad Carlton presents Solology, the companion course to Rhythmology, which in many ways, picks up where Rhythmology left off. You will play your way through the identical blues, rock, pop, jazz, funk, twang and fusion tracks, only this time, the focus is on developing your melodic ideas and fretboard navigation skills for compositional and improvisational soloing in any style. Revealing a few "studio shortcuts" and enlightening your perspective of the fretboard, Brad Carlton's Solology expands the knowledge base and palette of colors that you'll paint with when soloing over any changes. Carlton's quick-start, contextual approach gets you there fast. You'll learn how to analyze any vamp, progression or tune, identify parent and street keys and then "play the changes" with melodic Solos, question and answer phrasing, tone targeting and other key soloing and harmonic identification concepts, all of which equip you to perform tasty, memorable solos on the fly.

Slash chords are an effective way of notating inversions of triads, extended harmonies and tension oriented sonorities. The concept of a triad over a bass note serves not only in the solo guitar realm, but also in an ensemble situation in which the bass note is played by the bass player thus freeing up the guitarist both technically and texturally to use major or minor triads in various inversions as a springboard for melodic fills. Another added benefit of viewing harmony via slash chords is the ease of determining which scales to apply for comping and soloing. In Slash Chord Science, Brad Carlton drills down deep on visualizing major and minor arpeggios and chord voicings over the entire fingerboard, understanding street key versus theoretical key analysis, chromatic bass line options under major and minor chords, and common slash chord formulas applied to bi-chordal progressions.

Genre: Video Training

Sounds cool, but what the heck is "vertical soloing" and why would anybody want to learn how to do it? The most commonly accepted definition of vertical soloing is where a musician is focused on playing over individual chords in a progression or tune, rather than playing a scale that is common to all of the chords in the progression (horizontal soloing). Usually the musician is working with the chords' arpeggios, changing from one arpeggio to the next as the chords change, a very common approach for bebop. Vertical soloing, for guitar players in particular, offers other very desirable benefits. When playing tunes that don't necessarily fit a standard progression like most blues or rock tunes, intermediate and even early advanced players tend to solo by following the chords up and down the neck, primarily because they cannot "see" all of the chords and underlying harmonic structure in a single position.

There’s something magical about open string voicings and you simply can’t have too many of them in your chord vocabulary. They’re challenging to construct because the open strings have to be harmonized by key and chord type. These 15 studies reveal the underlying formulas. If Forest Gump’s shrimp-loving Bubba played guitar, his take on chords might go something like this, ”You can strum ‘em, fingerpick ‘em, arpeggiate ‘em, mute ‘em, alternate tune ‘em, voice lead ‘em. Dey’s uh, barre chords, altered chords, extended chords, moveable chords, cluster chords, slash chords, inversions, triads, diads. There’s jazz chords, power chords, blues chords, cowboy chords, block chords, open chords…”

This course is specifically targeted at players who are relatively new to the concept of playing jazz standards. Knowing what and what not to play is critical especially when working with a keyboard player. Guide tones are the thirds and sevenths of any major 7, minor 7, or dominant 7 chord. Since these are the tones that define the quality of the chord, they are one of the most useful tools for a guitarist whether playing solo, or playing in any group context.
