Product Overview


In this vintage Hal Leonard video tutorial series, one of today's most influential jazz-rock guitarists, Grammy-winner Larry Carlton puts his talent to work for you in two areas of specialization: Blues and Chord Substitution, and is suitable for all levels of guitar players!

The Blues section deals with imitation, theme development, extended phrasing, banding techniques, vibrato and solo construction. In the Chord Substitution section, Larry explains his trademark triad approach, starting with basic chord substitution and leading to extended triad-on-triad usage.

This is Larry's exciting fusion sound, spelled-out, clarified and made accessible to any guitarist. All examples are clearly illustrated with substantial musical phrases and improvised solos. Exclusive live concert footage is provided throughout the series to demonstrate the use of Larry's examples in a live band situation.

The accompanying instructional booklet comes complete with easy-to-follow diagrams that correspond exactly to the video series.
