Walnut Creek, Orinda, Lafayette – Jazz Guitar Lessons
I have been teaching and playing guitar in East Bay since 1975. There are a lot of good guitar players in the area, but only a few great ones. In Walnut Creek, Orinda and Lafayette there are only a few good guitar instructors that have methods including soloing and reading music and music theory for all levels of beginners to advanced – and this is what you need to go from good to great, along with discipline and love.
Today I share with you a great jazz guitar composition by great guitarist Steve Erquiaga from Alameda California. Steve has performed, toured and recorded with such great artists as Joe Henderson, Bobby McFerrin, Les McCann and Sadao Watanabe.
In addition to conducting his own seminars in the U.S. and Europe, Steve is a staff member with the Jamey Aebersold Jazz Clinics that are week long clinics held all over the world. He is faculty member at San Jose University, San Jose , California, teaching Guitar ( jazz as well as other contemporary styles).
Here is a PDF file you can download entitled “EL NINO.” Today I give you the lead guitar part with Latin fill using great jazz lines and jazz chords along with syncopation. Once you have perfected part one lead guitar, then try part two rhythm part soon to be posted.
