About This Item
In this 12 page PDF, Adam has prepared a very helpful comparison to Pat Martino’s Minor Conversion and Barry Harris’ chord simplification in this one lesson. In this lesson you’ll learn the theory behind each approach. Stop the panic when you encounter a song packed with chord changes. Playing through fast songs will be easier while still playing great ideas while improvising. Even though each tactic differs, the underlying concept is the same: Make chord changes easier to solo over by thinking less. Both are reduction concepts to free your mental resources while improvising by playing over less chord changes that are written or being played by everyone else.
The PDF guides you along in a step by step process using examples to learn from, then you can begin implementing them right away.
