Jazz guitar workshop

By and with Marcus Klossek

Dear friends of the cultivated jazz guitar,

Welcome to the world of modal scales!

In the last workshop before the summer break on Saturday, June 29, 2024 from 2 to 4 p.m., Marcus Klossek will take a closer look at the so-called church scales with you under the title Modes & Scales!

To understand this, we will first demonstrate how the modal scales are created, namely by deriving them from a simple C major scale. We will then look in detail at the implementation on the guitar, which scale fits over which chord, possibilities for soloing and more! To get you in the mood, you can listen to the Miles Davis album Kind Of Blue!

As always, everything is written down in notes and tabs to take home with you. There are also matching mp3 tracks to play and deepen the scales!

Marcus studied music at the Amsterdam University of the Arts and put the finishing touches on his guitar playing in masterclasses with jazz luminaries like Jack deJohnette, Jim Hall and Pat Metheny! Through countless club and festival gigs he is one of the busiest musicians in the German scene and has already released 8 albums with his Marcus Klossek Trio!

The workshop is suitable for anyone who already has some basic guitar knowledge and is new to the field of jazz or wants to brush up on their jazz skills!

Sign up right away with Marcus(info@marcusklossek.de)– the price is 30 euros.
