An interval is the distance between two notes measured in whole and half steps. When we stack intervals one on top of another, we produce chords. If we play the intervals in the chord one after another, we produce an arpeggio. But since all intervals, chords, and arpeggios are generated by scales, it follows that scales are the basis of all music from these scales we will find our JAZZ LINES, which is what this book is about.
All of the great players, have had a great technique and this is the first goal of the young student – “great chops.” As the student matures, musicianship will grow but technique is at the grasp of all who seek it. Start today to acquire it!
