Hi, sorry if this has been covered in other topics but I used the search button and checked the new what songs thread (which is awesome). I wanted to start messing around with jazz/bluesy.......but I don't listen to anything like that really, I was just wondering if somewhere could tell me where I should start or maybe give some suggestions on some songs to try. Thanks for any help.
Listening to jazz would be a good start. What type of jazz are you planning on playing? Gypsy jazz, contemporary jazz, club jazz, nu-jazz, etc? Each has a very unique style.
of your good, go for some Django.
I suggest listening to some Wes Montgomery.
Jazz and Easy should not be in the same sentence unless separated by a 'not'. Learn your theory. And listen to everything, not just Jazz.
