Overview

Melodies based on triads and melodic extensions are more natural sounding and musical than ones developed exclusively from scales. Triads--the fundamental building blocks of harmony--are a simple and effective remedy for scale dependency in improvisation. Jazz Improvisation for Guitar explores the potential of triads and their melodic extensions and teaches you to connect them using guide tones. You'll learn to create solo phrases in the style of some of the world's finest jazz guitarists like Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Grant Green, Kenny Burrell, and Pat Martino.

The included play-along CD features outstanding musical examples and rhythm-section tracks performed by a topflight trio: Garrison Fewell on guitar, Steve LaSpina on bass, and John Riley on drums. A special bonus track explores the techniques you've learned throughout the book.
