Learn to play bluegrass jazz Guitar with this instructional book and 3 x CD set.

When first listening to flatpicking Guitar legends Doc Watson and Clarence White, Barry Solomon was particularly attracted to their use of swing and jazz licks and phrasing, and their choices of songs straight from Tin Pan Alley and the Great American Songbook. Tunes like Limehouse Blues, All of Me, and Honeysuckle Rose were exciting challenges to explore after becoming comfortable with bluegrass and fiddle tunes.

Barry Solomon always thought that bluegrass and jazz were a wonderful combination, and the most gratifying challenge has been to create arrangements that meld both styles in a tasteful and exciting manner.

This volume includes the songs Lady Be Good, Take the A Train, Solly's Blues, Back Home In Indiana, There'll Never Be Another You and Georgia On My Mind. Accompanying audio is included.
