The workshop will explore open string voicings, from conception to implementation, along with other techniques, including reharmonization and upper structure use. The focus will be on the creation and use of these techniques and their application to the standard jazz repertoire. Participants are encouraged to bring their instruments and should have a basic knowledge of fundamental harmony and chord progressions. Workshop participants will be provided with handouts containing written examples and specific voicings. Photography and/or videotaping is welcome.
