Do you want to develop greater fingerboard familiarity and improvisational fluency, and learn a lot of licks at the same time? Then, regardless of your level, this book is for you. The goal of this book is to demonstrate how fingerings can be applied in a realistic jazz setting, and to help players get a better handle on negotiating the guitar's fingerboard and improvisation in general, while learning a hip solo over a cool background. This book has a number of dynamic features, including... - A methodical, position by position look at improvisation. - A focus on phrasing. - Cool, repetitious grooves that give the player a chance to develop skills without the added complication of having to change to a new scale or key center. - Swinging solos that cover the range of a given fingering or position. - Formulas for the major modes and a variety of other scales. Each solo contains a number of hip phrases, licks, and patterns that take advantage of the related scale position and fingering. In addition to developing fingerboard familiarity and improvisational skills, the solos also provide good sight-reading material.
