Guitar Control, the company that has stated they “won’t stop until the whole world can play the guitar”, continues their quest with this video clip that contains a cool jazz guitar lesson. More specifically, it actually involves a tasty lick from a song called Now’s the Time by Charlie Parker, the now legendary jazz artist from the 1940s’.

The qualified teacher in this tutorial is Jon MacLennan, who happens to be an exceptional jazz player himself. The lick that he conveys here is in the key of F and it entails some arpeggios as well as chromatic notes, which is why it may be an ideal exercise for pretty much anyone to try. Plus, this is one of those timeless jazz guitar licks that sounds so good, many guitarists will probably wanna learn it once they listen to it.

Furthermore, not only is Jon skilled with the six-string, but he also has a laid back method to teaching that makes his guitar lessons easy to follow for most skill levels. Although this video is only one and a half minutes long, that’s all it takes to show how to play Charlie Parker on guitar, or at least this particular lick. In addition, jazz bebop tabs are provided which will show where to place the fingers for each note that is to be played.

Charlie Parker, the musician behind the jazz guitar lick in this lesson, was an American composer and saxophone player that was born in 1920 and passed away in 1955. However, during his short but influential life he created some incredible sounds, and his immense contributions to music will always be relevant and remembered. He also helped invent bebop, a fun style of jazz that features a fast tempo and focuses on improvisation.

Nowadays, whenever somebody is searching for a free and informative guitar lesson, they may want to begin their exploration in cyberspace. In fact, Guitar Control currently has well over 300 video clips on You Tube which are all about the six-string. So whether someone is just beginning, would like to get better, or even learn a new style, it seems this is one company that could keep almost any guitarist busy, for at least a little while!
