Product Overview

This is your opportunity to learn with one of jazz guitar's most gifted artists, the late Emily Remler. All of the essentials of true jazz bebop and swing are taught here, including Wes Montgomery and Pat Martino styles, working with the metronome on 2 and 4, learning to identify changes, jazz-style blues, turnarounds, practice tips, passing notes and chords, chord substitutions, the “Charleston” rhythm, octave-style playing, Latin swing style, and much more!

Emily Remler was one of the hottest jazz players to come around in a long time. She recorded four solo albums (Firefly, Take Two, Transition, and Catwalk) and a duet album with Larry Coryell (Together). She toured with Astrud Gilberto, collaborated with Pat Martino, worked on movie scores and played guitar in the Broadway hit Sophisticated Ladies.
