Nicolas Slonimsky published the Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns in 1947, which was largely ignored for years until the likes of John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, Allan Holdsworth, Frank Zappa, Paul Grabowsky and many other significant artists started crediting the material as a source of great inspiration, which sparked highly creative improvisation.
Jazz guitar genius, Joe Diorio was likewise inspired by Slonimsky’s work and later published his own highly acclaimed Intervallic Designs, which focuses on a wide variety of intervallic designs for freestyle improvisation.
Rock guitar genius, Jennifer Batten studied with Joe Diorio for many years absorbing both Slonimsky’s and Diorio’s intervallic teachings, eventually assimilating those ideas into her own intervallic-driven approaches for soloing and improvisation in a modern rock context.
Jennifer’s 50 Ultra-Intervallic Licks is a comprehensive collection of Jennifer’s intervallic approaches. Work your way through the course and you’ll possess an impressive vocabulary of head-turning intervallic licks that you can call on anytime, across the entire fretboard, to spice up your solos and improvisations.
More importantly, you’ll graduate the course with a solid know-how for crafting your own intervallic lines, in any harmonic situation. You’ll also majorly beef up your right and left hand technique along the way.
Jennifer demonstrates each lick over a rhythm track for optimal musical context, and then breaks it down for you note-by-note. All 50 licks are tabbed and notated, plus you’ll get Guitar Pro files as well (Windows & Mac compatible) so you can loop, play and/or slow down the tab and notation. All of the rhythm tracks are also included for you to work with on your own.
Breakaway from those way-too-familiar (and boring) fretboard patterns with 50 powerful doses of Jennifer’s Ultra-Intervallic medicine!
