Mike Stern Jazz Guitar Video Lessons
Posted by Michael Mueller on December 5, 2012 at 6:34 PM
A true pioneer of jazz fusion guitar, Mike Stern has developed a singular voice on the instrument and become one of the genre's most studied pickers. Combining an encyclopedic grasp of jazz harmony with a blues flair and a no-holds-barred rock guitar approach, Stern is truly a guitarist's guitarist. And now, in partnership with Guitar Webinars, Inc., we're excited to offer five brand-new guitar video lessons on jazz soloing, taught by Stern himself.
In the 1970s, Stern attended Berklee College of Music, where he studied under legendary educator Mick Goodrick as well as a young but already masterly jazzer named Pat Metheny. Stern then landed a gig with Blood, Sweat & Tears, where he played side-by-side with the great bassist Jaco Pastorius. In 1981, Miles Davis chose Stern as a sideman for his comeback tour, and then kept him on for three subsequent albums.
Since that time, Stern has not only played with such jazz legends as Joe Henderson, Michael Brecker, Ron Carter, Jim Hall, and David Sanborn but also released over 15 solo albums, including his latest release, All Over the Place, which features guest appearances from Randy Brecker, Richard Bona, Kenny Garrett, Esperanza Spalding, and Victor Wooten, among others.
