Never have 12 bars of music been treated to such a detailed, logical study.

Whether you already play jazz, or are trying to expand your melodic horizons from the traditional blues, Jazz Blues Soloing For Guitar is a step by step method which breaks down the 12 bar jazz blues into its most essential elements.

Each chord is taken in turn, and every important soloing approach is discussed. From arpeggio based ideas, to chromatic approach notes, passing notes, bebop scales and altered scales. Every concept is instantly made musical with plenty of lines and practice ideas based on the real world application of each idea.

The emphasis is on creating smooth, flowing blues lines that are constructed from each concept taught in the book. Plenty of examples are given for every playing situation; however the book focuses on teaching the reader to build their own lines from fundamental principles of jazz theory.
