Description

So you want to play jazz and improvise like a real pro? This book will show you how, fast! First learn a few basics: the all-important scales, fingering and chord sequences, starting with a simple Bossa nova solo. then move on to arpeggios and more complex patterns such as the be-bop scale. Experiment with melodic shapes and discover the jazz-based blues progression used at most standard jazz gigs. The music examples then demonstrate rhythmic and free flowing ideas with lots of tips on the advanced techniques used by professional jazzers. In no time at all you will be creating your own solos in the style of such great jazz legends as Wes Montgomery, Charlie Christian, Sonny Rollins and Jim Hall.
Five complete solos are included in the book in easy-to-follow tab.
On the CD you'll find a matching audio track to every music example in the book. Each track is recorded twice: first with the guitar, the with backing track only so you can play the guitar part.

Customer Reviews


Rating Review
Customer Rating I have been making the 'journey to jazz' on and off for about ten years now. This book's basic fault is that it leaves huge gaps where no gaps need to be. Example: the first piece in the book is the chord sequence to 'Blue Bossa' - it isn't called that, I suppose to avoid some kind of copyright problem. The instruction supplies a few scales in or around 5th position, then immediately skips to a full-blown solo starting in the tenth position. Frankly, guys, this isn't a beginner's piece. Yep, it's got lots of II-V-I sequences, but they're in awkward keys (centre Eb) which makes it troublesome for the beginner (even one who is a fair sight-reader). There are no fundamental principles to be distilled here - just a few (admittedly rather good) examples of jazz soloing. I was left saying 'Well, what now?' even after coming back to the thing two or three times.
