DIAMOND DUST Posted January 20, 2004 Share Posted January 20, 2004 Is it the ability to improvise over changes? Is it someone that has a large number of standards under their belt, and can transpose them to any key? Is it someone with a deep understanding of theory, and can play any chart on the spot? I can play over changes. I know a shitload of chords, and can play them in atleast 4 positions. I can play Autumn Leaves & Phase Dance, but no way would i ever call myself a Jazz musician. All I know is that real Jazz is very hard to learn and understand. Just wondering what you guys think it takes to call yourself a jazz Guitarist. Not trying to start a bitch fest. http://b-cordova.dmusic.com/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
