Movie Reviews

Joe Pass Instruction
Touch Typer | California | 06/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The DVD includes a booklet with all of the video examples transcribed on the treble clef - with absolutely no tablature. If you live off of tab then I wouldn't recommend this video, but if you can read music there is a wealth of information to study and learn from.

Joe breaks everything down to its simplest form - major, minor, or dominant. He covers everything very quickly and then goes to the examples, which he gives plenty of. However, if you're hoping for some chord melody tips or counterpoint examples you'll be disappointed with this video - it covers exactly what the title says: Jazz LINES. He does speak a little bit in the beginning about how he views chords but he doesn't go beyond that.

For anyone looking to learn about playing jazz lines, improvising, or about Joe's lead style in general, this is a fantastic buy. If you can't read music but are interested in Joe's style and can learn visually without too much grief, I would recommend the video, but the ability to read will certainly help you to get as much from the material presented as possible."
Must buy for Jazz learners!

"IF you love Larry Carlton, you must love Joe Pass. After all, he is the ultimate jazz guitar man who taught Larry when he was a teenager. The title "Joe Pass Jazz Lines" is what it is, Jazz Lines. Don't expect much dialogue from his previous instructionals. He sits down and he starts playing, phrase by pharse. There are tons of music theory that he does not explain. But if you have some music theory at hand, these ideas can really come in handy. A small study booklet with notes, no tabs, is provided so you can practice along. Again, Joe's DVDs are all choked full of inspiration and ideas."
Learn from the Master.

"Joe Pass is my favorite guitarist. To learn from the master comes once in a life time.
If you want to learn from the source, this is it."
