This book will give you a thorough technical workout, while having fun at the same time! The accompanying audio allows you to play along with a rhythm section as you practice your scales, arpeggios, and chords in all keys. Instead of avoiding technique exercises because they seem too tedious or difficult, you'll look forward to playing them. You'll never be unsure about how to play each example, because all the exercises have fingerings provided. Various voicings and rhythmic settings, which are extremely useful in a variety of pop and jazz styles, are also introduced. Audio is accessed online using the unique code inside each book. The tracks include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, and more.
