Product Overview

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.

Exclusive live concert footage is provided throughout the series to demonstrate the use of Larry's examples in a live band situation.
