Bradford keen multi-instumentalist
- a great variety of music to try edited to make it very accessible but without compromising the flavour of each piece. There are little bonuses. The bass line to the New Orleans tune (Marching Down St Claude) really catches the style well. which sets up the lead line to sound authentic. Hints on strange tunings I found insightful and helpful. A variety of time signatures enriches the collection, not least because the tunes in 2 each have a distinct time feel. The book is very well printed, the extra notes very helpful. The additional material on CD-Rom excellent. This is intelligent, and interesting, and musical. Highly recommended if you want to learn to play well and to do so with some insight. A rich starting point for adventurous improvisors.
