WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? This is the ultimate Jazz Guitar practice pack! Includes all 3 Volumes from our play-a-long series, especially formatted for guitar. All 3 include TAB! Here's what you get:
Volume 1 for Guitar: Our world-famous "Volume 1 - How To Play Jazz And Improvise" has been completely revised and specifically tailored for guitarists by jazz great Corey Christiansen! This edition is perfectly aligned with the original classic Sixth Edition that introduced tens of thousands of musicians to essential jazz fundamentals such as scale/chord relationships, articulation, note choices, etc. In this special version, however, the text has been carefully edited and rewritten to speak specifically to guitarists. Even non-reading players will benefit, because we've also included TAB and FRAMES for each of the musical examples. The piano track from the original CD has been replaced by Corey on guitar, and many of the chords and voicings are explained and notated in the book. The play-a-long/demonstration CD includes special stereo separation, allowing the guitar on each track to be eliminated so that the student can play along with bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Jonathan Higgins. A second CD includes the same play-a-long tracks as the first CD, but at slower practice tempos. This high-quality book is spiral bound, designed to lie flat for ease of use. A complete package!
Volume 2 for Guitar: Vol. 2 includes all of the scales and basic info you need to get started in Jazz/Rock Blues with TAB and Frames for the non-reading guitarist plus brand new BONUS tracks not found in the original Volume 2. Tracks include many different blues grooves, including slow, fast, swing, bossa, jazz-rock, funk, shuffle, etc. This Guitar edition is aligned exactly with the original Volume 2, Nothin' But Blues so educators can use it in a class room situation. As a bonus to the CD, all tracks are available for free online with bass and drums only, so you can "sit-in" without the guitar.
Volume 3 for Guitar: Just like Vols. 1 and 2, this one uses both standard and TAB notation and is correlated closely to the original edition, but speaks directly to the aspiring jazz guitarist and addresses all of the important techniques and concepts used by jazz guitar legends to solo and comp over II/V7s. Completion of this easy-to-understand volume will have you ready to play any song that contains II/V7s, including most songs of the Bebop and the Great American Songbook era. Includes 2 CDs of trio accompaniment and demonstration tracks plus free bass-and-drum-only mixes available online that allow you to "sit in" and practice without the recorded guitarist present.
