Seminal Influences and Key Learnings that Helped Shape My Own Sound
Every musician has a long list of other musicians, past and present, that have inspired, influenced and helped shape their own sound and musicality. It's the natural evolution of music. We asked Tom Dempsey to pass on to you some of the key learnings that his Guitar Heroes passed on to him.

”Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Jim Hall, Grant Green, Pat Martino, and Joe Pass are just a few of the players that greatly influenced my sound.

I’ll first show you a few of the techniques and approaches that I picked up from each one of them and then we’ll play through a series of performance studies for musical context, complete with all of TrueFire’s learning tools to help you work through the content.

One of the things I love about Wes Montgomery’s playing is his signature use of octaves in his solos, which I’ll demonstrate for you. Next we’ll dig into Kenny Burrell’s seamless transitions between hard bop and blues language. Jim Hall’s use of motivic development is something every player can put to good use.

We’ll also take a look at Grant Green’s well crafted lines that beautifully outline the changes. We’ll examine Pat Martino’s virtuosic improvisational approach and last, but certainly not least, Joe Pass and his masterful solo guitar playing.”

In this course, Tom will first introduce his heroes to you and describe why he found them so influential. After each discussion, Tom will then present a performance study illustrating those influences in a musical context, over a backing track. A breakdown follows every performance and he will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches in play.

You’ll get standard notation and tabs for all of the performance studies. Plus, you’ll be able to use TrueFire’s learning tools to sync the tab and notation to the video lesson. You can also loop or slow down the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace. All of the backing tracks are included to work with on your own as well.
