Fred Sokolow introduces six timeless standards that demonstrate the self-accompanying art of chord solos. Sokolow introduces the melodies and chords for familiar tunes including Fly Me To The Moon and Georgia On My Mind, detailing a variety of ways that the tune and harmony can combine in one full solo, a sound popularised by many Jazz greats including Jim Hall, Martin Taylor and Joe Pass.
The melodies and chords are themselves arranged for beginners, and Sokolow expertly guides you through any tricky spots and awkward chords. Soon you will have six complete solo guitar arrangements under you fingertips, complete with a few extra ideas to expand the pieces as you vocabulary develops. Furthermore, you'll find yourself able to apply these simple ideas to create self-accompanying arrangements of other standards and even your own songs. The disc includes a booklet featuiring all examples in Tab and notation.
