This method book by renowned jazz artist Mimi Fox utilizes a unique approach to helping guitarists develop strong solos. Scales, arpeggios, patterns, and syncopated rhythms are introduced in a logical clear fashion. All of this is then applied to the "graduated" studies that follow.
Starting with simple melodies, and then progressively adding more complex figures based on arpeggios, scales, passing tones, and syncopated rhythms the "graduated" solos will teach students how to develop their own great solos by using the techniques contained herein. "Graduated Soloing" is stuffed full of great ideas/patterns/licks drawn from Mimi's many years of playing with the top musicians in Jazz/Pop music.
The book concludes with an explosive solo of Mimi's over a 12 bar blues and includes tab as well as musical notation with a detailed analysis by the author. CD contains all examples and solos.
