Odd-time signatures are often an enigma to the Western musician and present
specific challenges when it comes to phrasing and feeling. This book will improve
any musician's ability to intuit odd-time signatures, through 48 etudes in 5/8, 7/8,
9/8, 10/8 and 11/8 time. "Mixed etudes" are also included, which feature
different traditional and odd-time signatures within each piece. All of these studies
will facilitate note-reading and position playing abilities, and are applicable to jazz,
classical and contemporary Guitar genres.
The Mel Bay Achieving Guitar Artistry series is designed to condition and guide
the developing guitarist to an advanced level of proficiency, regardless of the
style of music performed.
