The Purpose of the Play What You Hear jazz guitar lesson program is to teach the student to, dramatic pause, to play what they hear. Seriously, the author, Chris Standring, makes a great point that many guitarists learn to master the fretboard through visualizing shapes and patterns. The unfortunate result is that solos improvised in this manner can sound contrived. Chris goes on to say that he believes that many guitarists often have no idea that they do not hear what they play.

Everything you need to skyrocket your jazz guitar playing - all in one place! I'm Chris Standring and I've been playing guitar a long time now. For over forty years, and professionally for around thirty. I've seen a lot of changes happen in the world during that time, certainly the way we learn to play music is drastically different now.
Back when I began to play there was no world wide web, we learned from books, guitar teachers, or by sitting down on our own and figuring things out. It was a simpler time, and some would say better in terms of learning as there were fewer distractions. These days, because of technology, there are a million ways to keep occupied.
When I was a kid, I either sat in my bedroom practicing or I would be outside on the farm hanging out with my brothers. But the smart committed student embraces the new technology. It has allowed us to learn through video, and the luxury of being able to replay that video time and again.
I have been embracing internet learning for a good while now with my jazz guitar programs. Now I have something brand new for you, and something I just know you will love. It's an elite private member's club called The Inside Track.
I say 'elite' because it's geared for those who seriously want to commit to learning their instrument. You get out what you put in, and I'm looking for people just like you, studious players who want to see real results. And if there is something you don't see that you would like to, and you think it would be beneficial to others, just ask. What's the big deal? The Inside Track is a truly unique place. I'm always asking myself, "If I had to go back all those years ago and learn all over again, what would I want to help get me there quicker?
I focused on how to get the notes under your fingers in the most concise and easily understandable way. I am proud of those instructional programs, I don't think I could personally have imparted that knowledge to you better.
But now there is the question of practice tools. So far I have focused on imparting musical knowledge, ideas, theory and so on. What about a place where we can go to practice all the ideas I talk about? Practice ideas that anyone else talks about for that matter. And so I came up with The Inside Track. A place where you can practice with super high quality play along tracks, new lessons, performances and transcriptions and a TV show showcasing the finest musicians in the world.
All this, exclusive to The Inside Track. Let's dig a a bit deeper shall we? I have a fully fledged state of the art recording studio in my home. I produce all my albums here, so I have a good idea as to what sounds sonically high quality. These play along tracks sound good!
Really good. A problem I have always had with play along tracks in the past is that the rhythm sections are often way too busy, too out of control. I can only imagine this is the case because while the players were in the studio recording, they were not supporting a soloist, so often they overplayed. I have kept this in mind and asked "What would I like to hear if I was taking a solo?
I have included play along tracks to many well known jazz standards as well as vamps and sequences that everyone needs to practice to if they want to improvise well on chord changes.
I have also included some of my own album tracks without my guitar, and happy to upload many more. Click on a link and a pdf chart comes up that you can open in a new browser window or simply download and print. And the good news? If there is a song you would like a backing track for that you don't see, just ask. The Inside Track will grow quickly and become a community driven magical place.
I originally started making these play along tracks because I wanted something inspiring to practice to myself. Needless to say I personally use these tracks every day in my own practice time. Your browser does not support the audio element.
Unlike my existing guitar programs, where I have presented information that I feel is necessary, The Inside Track is more personal, where I present information that you would like to see. Some lessons will be from guest artists, most from me. Some are in video form, some are in traditional print, along with audio examples, and downloadable high rez pdf.
Example lesson Link opens in a new window. I have always felt that the most inspiring way to pick up an instrument and practice is by hearing a great player play.
Personally, I am constantly looking for that kind of inspiration. I have included many performances of me playing jazz standards, as well as alternate versions of my own compositions, and some of these are transcribed and available for you to download.
Example performance Link opens in a new window. Each guest records two to four songs in the studio while being videotaped live, followed by an in depth interview. Each guest artist brings a rhythm section of their choice and you can expect to see world renowned artists performing live on your Inside Track TV screen. Watch season 1 episode 7 here. All the archives with plenty of other episodes to watch are in the ITTV lounge in the membership area.
I have five highly acclaimed guitar instructional programs that are all accessible from the Inside Track membership site. You will learn the jazz vocabulary and understand how to improvise using this vocab over many different harmonies. You will learn to hear major, melodic minor and blues scales and learn harmony and how to see it all very simply on the fretboard. Contains over audio examples and tons of play along tracks. Section one focuses on single string improv.
Part three features six jazz guitar solos performed by Chris Standring. Every note transcribed in traditional notation and TAB. Every example is shown with video and audio. Utilizing a step by step regimen and tons of video examples, this program is the fastest possible way to get to playing chord melody at the highest level in the shortest amount of time. With play along tracks and downloadable pdf.
This program is also a great reference tool for any intermediate player wishing to go back and cover any fundamentals. The program will show you how to learn a ton of chords, without having to memorize six million shapes. You will learn how to read music, and how to sight read and play improvised solos at a basic level. This program is recommended to prepare the student for the above three intermediate jazz programs.

Play What You Hear Volume 1
Comes with play along tracks, spiral bound workbook and optional DVD. You lay it out very clearly and the musical ideas are all super cool, especially the II - V - I bebop phrases. I also liked your solos over "All the Things You Are" and the other tunes, too. In fact, all your solos have good, solid construction and a very swinging feel. I think this course will be very helpful to anyone that's looking to play over changes. Playing through this course will give the serious student of the instrument a more linear way to play up and down the neck, and in turn expand their range on the guitar. I can tell a LOT of work went into this project
