Favorite instructional videos?
Hey i was just wondering what some of everyone's favorite instructional videos are?
Ones where you either learned a lot, or ones that have some great playing on them, or perhaps there are some that have both?
1-Scott Henderson- "Jazz Fusion Improvisation" and "Melodic Phrasing"
THe first one is excellent if you want to learn the theory behind a lot of jazz and fusion soloing, ie what to play over certain chords, how to approach playing over changes. The second is a good wake-up call to the fact that how you phrase what you're playing is often more important than the actual notes.
2-Joe Diorio- "Creative Jazz Guitar"
This is a great video for giving you new and interesting ways to practice. He gives a few licks, but this more about creativity than theory.
These are the 2 that have helped me the most. I also own the following:
-Open Jam With George Lynch
These 4 are great to watch the player do their thing, and each has a few interesting things to practice, but i didn't get a huge amount of info out of them.
Over the years i've seen a few others (Lynch's REH, David Chastain, Michael Angelo, Holdsworth, Greg Howe), but i can't remember enough about them to have an opinion.
