Now it's time for you to learn the fundamentals of making your playing sound more full, phat, and flavorful.
In this course you will learn the secrets behind alternate voicings, substitutions, advanced progressions, grace notes and a ton of passing tones. All of these tools are the secret tricks that differentiate one musician from another.
Urban and Contemporary Worship Xtreme is designed to jump start you into the next phase of your playing. You already know how to play, but you've been stuck in the same spot. Urban and Contemporary Worship Xtreme is packed with chord progression variations, substitutions, licks, tricks, fast and slow movements, jazz, neo soul, DVD extras and an Xtreme dose of "phatness" that you've been craving! We have included many intricate chord arrangements as it relates to gospel, jazz, R&B, and neo soul. We also take very popular songs and "flip" them so you will know how to make songs more contemporary and urban sounding. Even if you don't play gospel music, you will appreciate the jazzy neo soul chords that you will learn from this DVD.
The cover and inside booklet of Down to the Bone's second album shows a variety of rare-groove record stores (both inside and out), displaying racks of records by Weather Report, Lonnie Liston Smith and Donald Byrd. The music itself is a delicious update of those same sounds – yes, the grooves are tighter and have a bit of hip-hop bounce, but the soloing is far and away superior to most acid-jazz releases. Programmers and group frontmen Stuart Wade and Chris Morgans have the irresistible knack of translating their influences into an instantly familiar yet radically different style of music, and the results are uniformly excellent.
