      Mel Bay Rock Curriculum: Fluid Soloing Book 3 - Chord-Lead Soloing For Guitar (Book/CD) (502705)
Availability:  


A professional book and CD set for intermediate guitarists looking to perfect their chord leads in a formulaic manner.

Book 3 in the Fluid Soloing series, Chord-Lead Soloing for Guitar is a complete method for developing fluid double-stop chord melody. This style of playing can be heard most notably in the playing of Jimi Hendrix (in songs such as "The Wind Cries Mary," Little Wing," and "Castles Made of Sand") as well in the music of the guitarists he influenced, including Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Chord-lead style playing bridges the gap between straight lead and strictly rhythm because it is simultaneously chordal (implying a specific major or minor chord) and melodic (carrying a distinct singable melody). The lessons show the guitarist how to develop this technique and create continuous connections of moving voicings, merging lead and rhythm into one flowing melodic chordal texture. This is accomplished through a comprehensive collection of chord-lead phrases, each of which is presented in at least three different fingerings (which is important for whole-neck flow). These phrases are then assembled into soloing études that demonstrate practical application over different chord progressions.

Chord-lead playing can be adapted to every style of music, including rock, jazz, blues, alternative, funk, R&B, country, and pop. Mastering chord-lead soloing also greatly increases a guitarist's ability to stand alone—that is, to play by himself unaccompanied by other musicians, mixing and switching between chording and lead improvisation. This book is a definitive guide, providing useful tutorials for mastering this highly respected style of playing. Standard notation, guitar tablature, and instructional CD included.
